Max Lucado, pastor and author wrote:
“The story’s told of a man on an African safari deep in the jungle. The guide had a machete and was whacking away the tall weeds and thick underbrush. The traveler, wearied and hot, asked in frustration, “Where are we? Do you know where you’re taking me? Where’s the path?” The seasoned guide stopped and looked back at the man and replied, “I am the path.”
Matthew 28:20, “I am with you always to the very end of the age.”
Now if the jungle guide gets lost or killed there is big trouble in the jungle. Our Guide did not get lost but he did get killed. But before he died he left clear instructions on how to find our way out of the wilderness of sin and death. Jesus is the path.
“When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going.”
“No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said. “We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
Jesus told him:
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” Jesus
