I am the way - The greatest gift

Updated on November 11, 2013

I am the way-the greatest gift

I remember the story told about  Einstein.  He was fond of cats.  While Einstein lived in Berlin, working as a patent office clerk, he did his research work in a small study away from his house.  While doing his research, a cat started to visit him daily.   Normally the cat would come and scratch the door and Einstein would open the door and feed it with milk.  After few weeks the cat come with a small cat. 

However, the cats at times could be rather burdensome, scratching persistently at closed doors, demanding to roam freely throughout the house.  He could not leave all the doors open, so he decided to cut holes in the bottom of the doors, producing cute little cat doors.   He cut out two holes in each door; a large one for the large cat and a small one for the small cat.  It made perfect sense to him.

You may be asking why he should make two holes for big cat and small cat?  Can't the small cat go through the big hole? 

Yes, you are right.  A small cat can go trough the big hole.  There is no need to make two holes.  Yes, Einstein, a reputed scientist,  made a small mistake.   We often make such mistakes in our life.  We are looking for big and small holes to get in. Some times we stare at the small hole through which we can't get in.  Some times we look for a perfect hole to get in.  Other times we are afraid of big holes.  The holes are there for you to get in. But you doubt.  You think, it's tooooo big to get in.

I am the way

When you build a house, would you make different doors with different dimensions. One door for you, another for your wife and one for your small child.  We would not make different doors suitable for each one of your family members.  Whether you are tall with 6' ft hight and your child who is small with a hight of 3' ft.  Both of you can get in to the house through the door which is of 7 ft.  That is the answer to the question of my friends who are asking how can one man's death make the mankind free of sin.  Jesus Christ said "I am the way"

Our Debt

Alfred  owes $1000000 to Bob.  Alfred does not have the money to pay his debt.  Bob is demanding his money from Alfred by showing the contract of agreement and the bills.  Alfred is now bankrupt.  He can't pay the debt.  Bob is threatening Alfred by saying that he's about to file a suit and the police would come and arrest him and lock inside the prison etc. Now Charlie  enters the scene.  Charlie is a rich man who has a lot of money at his disposal.  Seeing the trouble of Alfred, Charlie paid the entire money to Bob without being asked by Alfred.  Now Alfred is free.  Now there is no debt for Alfred. He is a free man.   We can call this act of setting free with different words.  It could be  compassion or kindness or a blessing.  Hallelujah.  Alfred is free from all his debts.  When Charlie paid all the debt of Alfred to Bob, Alfred only needs to have the faith in the act of Charlie's paying money to Bob.  Alfred have to believe that his debts have been paid in full.  Only believe.  No work is necessary to get out of his guilt feelings and trouble.

As per Bible "The wages of sin is death."  When we does sin, our reward is death.  We have to suffer for the work we done for the sin.  Sin will give you death as a reward for the work we have done for it.  Who can pay the price of our sin and redeem us from the clutches of sin.  

Jesus Christ died once and for all. Jesus paid the debt for me and you. Paid in full. You need to just believe that Jesus died for your sin.  You are free...  Jesus said "I am the way"  The only way to reach heaven.  Now we are free of sin.   You only have to believe that a sinless man died for you.  You may be asking how can a single man's death make the mankind free of sin.  As I stated above, we are looking for different size of holes to get in.  If one hole, which is big enough for everyone to get in, why are you looking for a suitable hole.  Why are you doubting.  For what you are waiting.  This is the right time to believe in Jesus and get your redemption.

The one who is the way to heaven conquered  the death.  Jesus resurrected from the death and conquered death.  The one who conquered the death is offering you freedom from  sin and it's wages. Believe in Jesus and set yourself free from the spiritual death.  A live a guilt free life.  It is a gift.

Greatest Gift

Suppose, if you get an I-pad as a gift, what would you do. Would you leave it unattended. Would you allow your little child to play with it and throw it at the floor? Would you leave it in a place where thieves can come and steal it? No. I don't think so. You would never do that in your perfect sense. I know you preserve it. You'll take care of it. It has many uses. You can connect with many people. You can surf net. Many features are there in it. It is a valuable gift. We honour valuable gift. You will take care of it. Yes, our salvation is a gift from God. We need to take care of it. Preserve it. It has great value. So don't forsake it and leave it unattended. It is the greatest gift you can ever have. To know more about preserving your greatest gift, read bible and understand it. Let us share the joy of our salvation.

      The only problem here in your analogy of the doors is that when Yahshua (Jesus) said “I am the way”. He wasn’t speaking of himself, but of God.

      In John 8 and 14 he explains that the works he did and the things he spoke wasn’t him doing the works nor was he speaking about himself.. It was God doing the speaking.

      He had the indwelling of the Holy Ghost (The Sacred power of God)

      See right there in John 14 verse 10 he says “the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself”.

      This is before the outpouring of the Holy Ghost on the believers. Yahshua said in Matthew 10:20 that when they (his disciples) were delivered up before the governors and kings, to not think about what they would say because it would be given to them what to speak because “it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you”.

      The difference is that Yahshua always allowed God to speak through him at all times and we don’t.

      Read these verses.

      John 8:28

      Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.

      John 14:10

      Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

      Matthew 10:19, 20

      19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.

      20l. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
