“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’”

Jesus gives spiritual life. When He said, “I am the way,” He meant, “Without Me there is no going.” When He said, “I am the truth,” He meant, “Without Me there is no knowing.” And when He said, “I am the life,” He meant, “Without Me, there is no growing. I give supernatural, spiritual life.” Christians are not just nice people trying to do better who have accepted some creed or some code. They are new creatures regenerated supernaturally by Jesus Christ who transforms them by sending His Spirit into their hearts and giving them supernatural life.
Jesus, who gives physical and spiritual life, also gives eternal life. John 10:10 says, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” In verses 27-28 of that same chapter, Jesus said, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.” Jesus is the author of physical life, spiritual life, and eternal life. What does eternal life mean? It speaks of the quality of life and quantity of life. He adds years to life and life to the years.
