People's Bible Notes for John 14:6


Joh 14:6 I am the way, and the truth, and the life. This is said in reply to Thomas. Without him there would be no Way revealed; no divine and saving truth, no immortal life. No man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Not only can no one enter the Father's house without him, but no man can come to the Father on earth so as to enjoy his favor. "There is no other name given under heaven among men whereby we must be saved" (Ac 4:12).

    "..if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." What the Lord has begun, He will not rest till He has completed. You who are the delight of His eyes, and the joy of His heart; howsoever the enemy and his minions roar and threaten us, Jesus is still at the right hand of God, and the day of vengeance is in His heart!

    Continue, The Father, by cultivating the Son works Himself with all His riches into the vine and eventually the vine expresses the Father in a corporate way through His branches.The Fathers economy in the Universe.When we abide in the Lord and His words abide in us, we actually are one with Him and He works within us.Than when we ask in prayer for whatever we will, it is not only we who are pray.
