Wednesday in the 3rd Week of Easter; 3rd May 2017
Jesus said to Thomas, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but by me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also; henceforth you do know Him and have seen Him.”
Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you do not know me, Phillip? He who has seen me has seen the Father.”
The Way. In a world where everyone go about doing things in different manners, it is usually difficult to know which is the right way to head for. When things of the world have us chasing them to our very detriment, following Christ who is the surest way to Heaven could be challenging. The Truth. We get fed everyday with lies on the social media as to what is right and what trends everyone ought to follow. Views on sex, relationships, family and religion gets mashed up with “half baked truths” and “well cooked lies” that we fail to look at that words of Our Lord Jesus Christ for the true answers. The Life. And what’s even worse, is the fact that in following the wrong paths, in believing in such lies, we end up slowly poisoning our hearts and minds, destroying our souls, dying from sin.
But Christ today points us back to the right direction in hopes that we turn around and follow the right Way which is Himself. He gives us the Truth so that we may believe and in believing, do marvellous deeds on earth. He offers us Life so that sin may create a barrier from us and Our Lord God no more.
Like St Philip the Apostle, our hungry souls may ask, “Lord, show us the Father, and we shall be satisfied.” Our Saviour Jesus Christ has the perfect answer. “I am the Way, and the Truth and the Life.” May we be given the grace to believe deeply in Christ and follow Him towards eternal glory.
