John 14 Devotions by Stephen Taylor

John 14:6

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


I could type for days and not be able to list all the things I’m thankful for this year. So many blessings and so much to give God glory for! Last night, He brought this verse to mind, and it reminded me how thankful I am that Jesus made it really simple for the remedial people like me. There is only one Way, one Truth, and one Life, and that is Jesus!!! I love how clear He makes it! There isn’t this way or that way; there is only His way!!!


Jesus gives us a definitive answer to the confusing question, how do I get to Heaven? Boom!!! You ready for this??? “The answer is Me,” He says!!! There aren’t hoops to jump through or enough good deeds to get you there. Just choose Him!!! Jesus made the most precious thing in the world, Himself, the easiest thing for us to obtain!!! It’s not do good and then come to Jesus, but rather come to Jesus and let Him show you how to do good!!!


This year has been crazy, but it’s never been out of His control! Because of the Father’s love, the Son’s sacrifice, and the Holy Spirit’s Presence, we can face tomorrow and face it with confidence!!! This year, the world has shown it can take a lot from us, but it can’t take the love of Jesus from us!!! He beat this world on its terms and then came back for each one of us!!!


Be focused, Be thankful, Be loving, and most importantly, be more like Jesus!!! I love you all, God bless, and glory to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!!!


John 14:12

“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” 


This isn’t an option but a responsibility of all believers!! I read this last night and was like, “What a great promise but also what a big responsibility!!” Jesus says “they WILL do.” To me, that means It’s not an option, and He expects it from His people.


This verse is talking about quantity not quality, like no one could ever match Jesus. We all know that! But our reach in the world has grown dramatically since He walked this earth 2000 years ago! We are able to reach more people in farther ends of the world, and we’re expected to! I believe the works Jesus is talking about here are not just miraculous healings and miracles but also accurate, sound teaching of Scripture, helping people who stray off the path, rebuking people who try to pervert the Gospel, intercessory prayer, and loving the unlovable!! 


When He went to the Father, we got yet another great gift from Him, and that is the Holy Spirit, who will guide us and help us accomplish this!!! We could never surpass Jesus or what he did, but we can sure show Him and His power to the world! The world is going to judge us by what we do and say, so let’s give them something to talk about!!!  


I love you all, God bless, and Glory to God!!!!!
