E. Stanley Jones tells of a missionary who got lost in an African jungle—nothing around him but bush and a few cleared places. He found a native hut and asked the native if he could lead him out of the jungle. The man said that he could. “All right,” said the missionary, “show me the way.” The guide said, “Walk.”
So they walked and hacked their way through unmarked jungle for more than an hour. The missionary got worried. “Are you quite sure this is the way? Where is the path?” The guide replied, “Bwana in this place there is no path. I am the path.”
We live in a world that is a jungle of sin. The only way out is Jesus.
“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’”—John 14:6
