To Know Jesus is to Know the Way (John 14:1-7)

Sermons JohnOn Sunday, February 21, 2016, Pastor Joe Troutman preached “To Know Jesus is to Know the Way” from John 14:1-7.

By his death on the cross, Jesus prepares a room for you in his Father’s house, and proves that he is the only Way to the Father.

1. Preparing a Place—Jesus’ disciples are troubled because they cannot believe how Peter could deny him. Jesus knows that their troubled spirits are at their core a faith issue. They are to look at the nature and promise of God. Jesus reminds them of who he is and what he is doing.

2. How Can We Know the Way?—Many efforts are made to reject the exclusive claims of Jesus by twisting Acts 10:35 out of context. The claims of inclusivity and universalism are not hard to refute by the word of God. Any means we use to have eternal life with the Father without the Man he has provided is to deny him. It is a denial of God’s grace and an exalting of your own strength and ability which will lead you to hell.

3. Knowing the Father by the Son—The Bible is clear and authoritative that there is no other name under heaven by which we must be saved than the merciful name of Jesus. Now he has gone ahead to prepare for your arrival. Believe in him and you’ll be a member of God’s household, adopted as sons.
