“I am the Road, also the Truth, also the Life. No one gets to the Father apart from me.” John 14:6 The Message

Jesus spoke your whole life’s direction in describing his life. The world offers every possible alternative roads. His road .. which is your true road .. is His life and the truth of your life is to be his life. And the Life He offers you is not simply a better life .. a blessed life .. or an abundant life. It is all of those things but it is so much more. It is His Life: full .. forgiven .. filled .. and free. The Life Jesus offers you today is connected to the Father .. the One who is loving you unconditionally at this moment. It is the only way He loves those who love the life of His Son living within them. Jesus speaks into the lives of the weary and the strong. Both need His life in order to live. Jesus speaks into the lives of the broken and the whole. Both need His life in order to live. Jesus speaks into the lives of the determined and the defeated. Both need His life to live. Jesus speaks into the lives of the betrayed and the betrayers. Both need His life in order to live. And He still speaks today .. to you .. for your life. They’re not just words … They are His life .. for you. And it only takes a moment …

“It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself — Spirit. Those who worship him must do it put of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.” John 4:23-24 The Message

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
