Christ, the Way, the Truth, and the Life

By Mary Wilder Tileston

      I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
      JOHN 14:6

      Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
      JOHN 20:29

      THE Way, the Truth, the Life Thou art,
      This, this I know; to this I cleave;
      The sweet new language of my heart,
      "Lord, I believe."
      I have no doubts to bring to Thee;
      My doubt has fled; my faith is free.

      WE have been placed upon the Way. We have been taught the Truth. We have been made partakers of the Life. The Way must be traversed; the Truth must be pursued; the Life must be realized. Then cometh the end. Our pilgrimage, long as it may be or short, if we have walked in Christ, will leave us by the throne of God; our partial knowledge, if we have looked upon all things in Christ, will be lost in open sight; our little lives, perfected, purified, harmonized in Him whom we have trusted, will become, in due order, parts of the One Divine Life, when God is all in all.

      Love is the life of faith; obedience, the life of love. Yea, rather, Christ Himself is the life of the soul.
