Summary

Jesus claimed to be “the Way, the Truth, and the Life” (John 14:6). In saying this, He also was proclaiming that the Christian faith, with Him as the author, is the only true way to God. Three things in particular set Christianity apart from all other philosophies and religions: The Life, which is the unique man, Jesus Christ; The Truth, which is the message of salvation preserved in the words of scripture, and The Way, which is the infilling and empowerment of the Holy Spirit Jesus promised to those who would believe on His name. Having the Holy Spirit living inside is the mark of a Christian, and being filled with the Spirit is something God commanded for those who wish to live a victorious and fulfilling Christian life.
