I AM The Way, Truth, Life

By Pastor Dan Williams, October 11, 2020

Big Idea: Jesus tells us that if our troubled hearts want to see, know and be with the Father in heaven, we’ll rest in him alone.

QUESTION #1 Why do our hearts become troubled?


John 14:5 (NLT) “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”


John 14:8 (NLT) 8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.”

QUESTION #2 What brings our troubled heart the peace it needs?

Jesus: I am all you to bring peace to your troubled heart.

John 14:6–7 (NLT) 6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. 7 If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him!”

The way: the one you must follow in order to be saved.

Deuteronomy 6:4 (ESV)

The truth: the authentic of God you must see to view His glory.

John 1:1,14,18, 14:7–11 (NLT)

The life: the source of explosive you must believe in order to overcome the grave.

The one foolish thing we must not say: Jesus was a good moral teacher or something less than the only way—merely one of many ways to God. C.S. Lewis’s “trilemma”: “Liar, Lunatic or Lord”


  • Sooth your troubled heart with .

“Have faith in God” means “hold God’s faithfulness” (Hudson Taylor)

  • your “search for truth” with Jesus.
  • your kids away from “pluralism”.
