This passage seems a bit narrow-minded to a lost world around us. Jesus doesn’t say He is a way, a truth and a life that could be considered living. He is very specific and firm in making this statement. If anyone is to follow the true path of life, they must follow Him. No tolerance for following another religion or any other god. He is the only way, truth and life. Period.
If you want to live a set apart life, then we must live in a “WEiRD” way apart from the world flow. From the book by Craig Groeschel titled “WEiRD”, he talks about being set apart and different from the world and it’s flow. This passage explains that following Jesus is going to definitely set us apart from the pattern of this world. Many people probably aren’t going to be receptive when we first explain to them that Jesus is the only true way in life. That is very narrow-minded and not tolerant.
It is easy for us to follow the wide gate that leads to destruction, but harder to follow the true way of life of Jesus and enter the narrow gate, which is much less popular and the cause of much ridicule, mockery and possibly persecution.
It’s time for us to be WEiRD and show the world there is a different way to live and it’s the only true way. He is the ONLY Way, the ONLY Truth, and the ONLY Life. That is truly WEiRD!
