In John 14:6 JESUS declares that HE is the Way, the Truth and the Life! In our Spoken Word Bible Reading Plan for today, John 10 shows JESUS letting us know that He is the the only Way to the Father by declaring that He is the DOOR the we must enter through in order to be saved! Verses 7-9:
So Jesus said again, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that I Myself am the Door for the sheep. All others who came [as such] before Me are thieves and robbers, but the [true] sheep did not listen to and obey them. I am the Door; anyone who enters in through Me will be saved (will live). He will come in and he will go out [freely], and will find pasture

Many fakes and frauds have appeared over the years proclaiming to have a better way to heaven, but it is NOT the Heaven of the Bible! How do I know? Because the Bible tells us precisely that JESUS is the ONLY Way! No other way will get us there! JESUS explains this even more clearly in verses 9-10, exposing the thief and giving us this most wonderful promise!
10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). 11 I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd risks and lays down His [own] life for the sheep.

"Have" here is the Greek word "echo", which means: to hold, as possessions, to own, to enjoy. The Kenneth Wuest translation says this:

 The thief does not come except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I alone came in order that they might be possessing life, and that they might be possessing it in superabundance.

The heart of the father is that we have HIS Life (Zoe, life as God has within Himself!), and that we have it in abundance so that this LIFE affects every area of OUR lives, bringing enjoyment, fulfillment, peace and joy! We ARE to be living witnesses of HIS greatness! HALLELUJAHS! THAT is an assignment that we can carry out with joy! AMEN! Here is Hillsong Young and Free with "Real Love":

Shalom in Him!
