The Way, The Truth, The Life

Jesus said to him,  
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. 
No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 14:6 



The way,
a road with a single lane
leading to the desired destination.
There may be rocks and ruts
to stumble over,
but he who walks in the light
will not trip.

The truth,
the prophecy fulfilled by the son,
the spoken word
of the one sent
as a lamb
for those who were
and are lost.

The life,
the one spirit
filling all who take faith
into their hearts
and treasure its essence.
The strength guiding us along the road,
to the destination,
eternal.
