Only One Way

via TJC

This and next week TJC is addressing core items we consider “absolutes”; those items often discussed and addressed in cultural dialogs, where we align with God’s word.  We all know people whose life experience and decisions are different and we know God loves us all the same, however His Word is not up for debate as a Kingdom Man/Family.

If you do not agree please respond in our comment section as we would love to have a “curious conversation” and listen to you.

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

- John 14:6

WE Believe that Jesus is the only way to heaven, He is the truth, the way and the life.  No other god or religion provides salvation.

Do I really believe that Jesus is the only way and the absolute truth? This was the first question

I found myself wrestling with….so I decided to do something about it. And while my military

compadres were getting Master’s degrees in National Defense and Strategy to advance their

careers, I departed the path and pursued a Master’s in Theology determined to find the truth.

I found what I was looking for: the abundant historical evidence and undeniable truth that Jesus

is the only Way. But that has led me further down a road of uncomfortable questions: If I

believe in my heart and confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord, then why am I struggling in

life? Why am I staring down a marriage on the brink of collapse? How could I be “successful”

in the military, corporate America, athletics, friendships with other guys, serve in the church,

but struggle so mightily with intimacy with my wife and kids? Why do I feel like a failure?

Because Failure is a better teacher than success, and the lesson is the same, there is only one

way. Whenever I have a Plan B (my way), then I’m not fully committed to Plan A (the way), and

that’s where the struggle is. Plan B looks for the easy way, convenient truth and self-indulgent

life. My marriage gets hard and I start envisioning divorce, “freedom”, or a relationship with

someone that will really appreciate me. I’ve tried most Plan B’s: finances, fitness, relationships,

mindfulness, accomplishments, substances, but none of them deliver the peace of the Father.

None of them heal the broken past or break the chains, enabling me to love my spouse and

parent my children in a way I didn’t experience, which brings me to our DBO.

Daily Battle Order:

Is Jesus your plan A? That’s step 1. Do you have a plan B? Identify it and get rid of it. That’s

step 2. If you want hep identifying your plan B then start by writing down the areas of your life

or relationships that you are trying to control, compartmentalize or muscle through. Closing

the doors to plan B opens the doors to the way, the truth and the life….Jesus.

Have you shared your plan with your family; they will follow your lead
