The Way, the Truth, the Life
The Gospel of John was “written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” (John 20:31) One of the ways that John chose to reveal Jesus’ identity to his readers is through the seven “I am” statements that Jesus makes throughout the book. Each of these statements reveals something about who Jesus is. The purpose of this sermon series is to magnify the greatness of God in Jesus by seeing Him for who He says He is, so that we and our hearers “may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”

We encourage you to spend some time with God this week and go a bit deeper on this topic. Please consider these study questions for further reflection:
Read John 14:1-7. Jesus encouraged us to "let not your hearts be troubled" and to believe in him. This type of belief is more than just an acknowledgment or intellectually believing something - it is to trust in it and to entrust yourself to it. In what ways have you "entrusted" yourself to Jesus and how has that protected your troubled heart.
Jesus claimed to be "the way" (the only way) to the Father. Do you believe that? What does embodying the way mean in our own time and culture?
Jesus is "the truth". What have you believed to be true in the past, that does not line up with the truth found in Jesus? How is the idea of truth perceived in current American culture? How does that jive with the followers of Jesus duty to follow the example of Jesus?
Jesus is "the life" - the original Greek word for life is "zoe" which means more than just breathing and existing, but to have a full, abundant, vibrant life. Do you feel like you are living an abundant life? What changes might you need to make in order to get there?
