Identity

John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Every person is unique. Each person has a unique way of speaking, a unique way of walking, a unique way of thinking. Our DNA is unique. Every person has a way – and we’ve all heard, “well, that’s just the way he or she is.”

So, what about God? What is He like? The true God has a unique identity just as we do. But who is He and what are His ways? Often, we think of Jesus as the way to God. However, He is also the way of God. He is the “exact representation of his being (Hebrews 1:3).” So, do you want to know the way God thinks? Then look at the way Jesus thinks. Want to know the way God acts?  Look at how Jesus acts. The way God speaks – look at the way Jesus speaks. Do you want to know anything about God and the way He is?  Then look at the ways of Jesus.

Identity theft, tricking others into thinking they are you, or that they are someone other than who they really are, is a rampant problem in our society. The perpetrators of this ruse never have your best interest in mind. Likewise, when it comes to the identity of God, there are many imposters. There are many who purport to know God or even be God. But if this god they say they know is other than Jesus, what they are saying is a lie and following any of the imposters will lead to death. None of them has our best interests in mind. Every one of them is actually following one who wants to steal from us, destroy our lives, and ultimately kill us. Only one Way is the true Way, and only one Way leads to life. Do you know Him or are you following some other way, a way of an imposter?
