Christians have said “Jesus is the way” for centuries. It is based on the verse, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” -John 14:6. This is one of the most misunderstood and misused phrases of Jesus, ever! It is used to keep people “out” of faith instead of providing pathways “in.” May the maze and puzzle help us remember that Jesus provides us an individual relationship and pathway to life. Faith is a puzzle, but one we solve as steps in a journey, not a magic phrase.
Have you ever been excluded from an invitation that others in your “circle” received? How did that make you feel?
If God is a God of infinite love, if God is Love, how would or could God be an exclusionary God and still be a God of Love?
