Worship Wednesday: The Way

Do you ever wake up with a song that you can’t get out of your mind or heart?  You sing it over and over throughout the day and it’s usually just the chorus or a few short lines?  You sing it so much that you end up hearing your friends or co-workers singing it too?  Either that or they ask you if you know any other song that you can sing?

I’ve had a song {well…just the chorus of the song} stuck in my heart for the last few weeks!   Honestly, it’s all Michael Stiles fault.  Michael joined the Legacy family not too long ago as our Worship Leader.  Not only is he talented, but he has such a gift of ushering the congregation into God’s presence through song.  Two weeks ago, he sang the song from Housefires called “The Way“…and OH MY GOODNESS!  Michael and the team killed it!

When we got to the chorus of the song, I couldn’t help but sing at the top of my lungs {and I will personally apologize to anyone who had to experience it!}  The truth of those 10 words still reverberate in my heart.

I believe You are the way, the truth, the life

Those were powerful words when Jesus spoke them in John 14:6 and they are still powerful over 2,000 years later!

Jesus is the way…He’s the way out of every mess, every battle, every heartbreak.  He’s the way to peace everlasting, joy unexplainable, glory undefinable.  He is the way to a right relationship with God, the way to eternal glory, the way to live this life with purpose!

Jesus is the truth…He’s the truth that sets us free, that breaks all our chains, that gives us victory.  He’s the truth that exposes our sin, that covers all our shame, that conquers all our fears.  He is the truth that sets our hearts ablaze, the truth that we read, the truth that we need!

Jesus is the life…He’s the life poured out for our sins, our struggles, our weaknesses.  He’s the life that wells up in our souls, that breathes new life into our hearts, that transforms our every thought.  He is the life that we long for, the life that gives purpose, the life we can’t do without!

Will you join me today in worshipping our Lord for that simple truth…Jesus is the Way, the Truth, the Life.
