552 I Am The Way, The Truth, and The Life. No One Comes To The Father Except Through Me, A Guided Christian Meditation on John 14:4-7 with the Recenter With Christ app  

The purpose of this podcast is to help you find more peace in your life and connect with the true source of peace, Jesus Christ. 

Outline: Relaxation, Reading, Meditation, Prayer, Contemplation and Visualization.

Get into a place where you can sit comfortably and uninterrupted for about 20 minutes.You should hopefully not be driving or anything tensing or unrelaxing.  If you feel comfortable to do so, I invite you to close your eyes.
Guided Relaxation / Guided Meditation:
Breathe and direct your thoughts to connecting with God. Let your stomach be a balloon inflate,  deflate.

Scripture for Meditation

4 You know the way to the place where I am going.” 5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” 6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

4 Where am going you know the way.” 5 Thomas said to him, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you know me, then you will also know my Father. From now on you do know him and have seen him.” 


These statements are incredibly meaningful. Jesus is the means by which we understand the Father. Even the term father is diluted by how we understand our earthy world. How are we to understand our relationship with the supreme being that created black holes, supernovae, and gravity. The all powerful being offers a relationship to us, and he calls us his Children. In some sense there are equal dangers of assuming that our earthy environment is a mirror or the heavenly one. In some ways if God is so unknowable that we can't feel any relationship to God, then we miss out on the most meaningful experience of life. Yet if we assume that the relationship is just like our earthly parental ones, we will fail to grasp the gravity of being in a relationship with the God of heaven. 

Each of our personal experience colors the way we receive the term as God our Father. Jesus bridges that gap with these words. He states that he is the way, the truth, and the life. Then in the next breath he tells that he is the one that connects us to the Father. Jesus gives a way for us to understand divinity, at least as much as our human minds can grapple with. We should be careful not to let our earthly experience overshadow the nature of this relationship that God offers. 

When I was very young, my father died. As such I have always had a hole in my experience. I had men that tried to be a guide for me but none can fill that gap. Similarly many people I talk to in pastoral counseling in my work, have complex or worse, poisonous relationships with their father. My hope for you today is that you are able to liberate these preconceived notions of the limits of human fatherhood, and realize the perfect, loving, patient, and inspiring Fatherly role for which Jesus is the way to become familiar with. Embrace God as your Father. Your creator, your Savior, Your Lord, and Your God. 

Meditation of Prayer:

Pray as directed by the Spirit.

Dedicate these moments to the patient waiting, when you feel ready ask God for understanding you desire from Him.

Meditation of God and His Glory / Hesychasm:

I invite you to sit in silence feeling patient for your own faults and trials.
