We shared a tremendous amount of truth in John 14:1-3. The next thing Jesus said to His disciples is verse 4, which says, “And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.” Jesus knew people better than they knew themselves. The Bible says that the Lord knows what is in the heart of man (1 Sam. 16:7). Jesus proved on innumerable occasions that He saw right into a person’s heart. Jesus knew His disciples. He knew that their thinking was still muddled. He knew they weren’t acting correctly.
When He said “And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know” (verse 4), that was a true statement, because they knew Him. Then Thomas said to Jesus, “Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?” (verse 5). Then, verse 6 says that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, but He knew that they didn’t understand this.
I believe Jesus was talking about God, about faith, and about how a lot of people throw away their faith. Many people think they’re operating in faith, when the truth is they aren’t operating in faith at all.
A lot of us are simply going through the motions. We’re dead inside.
