The Way to Life

John 16:32-33
“But I am not alone, because the Father is with me. I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.”

Jesus knew that He would be abandoned and crucified alone…with only a few remaining throughout His ordeal. But Jesus also had faith that God would never abandon Him…even though that was how it felt when He hung on the cross. Jesus felt every rejection and unjust persecution imaginable…but He had faith that the cross was not the end. Though it appears to be a dead-end to the world…in reality…it is the gateway to the ultimate New Life. It is the ultimate “letting go.” Jesus showed us the process of allowing your false self to die so that your true self can emerge. The prestige, power and wealth of this world will disintegrate…but the Love of Jesus and the New Life He promises…will last forever!
