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:
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!
"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.
Shalom in Him!
