esus was not only Master of the universe, he was Master of the metaphor, and could make a single word come alive like a miracle, turn water into wine, show the common and divine, cause a sun or star to shine right before our eyes. He took a simple word or phrase to explain or teach God’s ways. He took what children understand to clearly display what God had planned. He aimed for the heart however, not trying to be cleaver, for the heart is where our faith must start (it is the most important part). If men repent, believe his Son, be born again, trust what Christ has done, they would live for God and live with God forever.

Everyone knows what a door is. Jesus said “I am the door.” Everyone has fed on bread. Jesus said, “I am the bread of life,” and for the thirsty soul, he’s water.  Everyone knows what a father is, or at least they think they know. Depending on what they found on earth, tend to think too high or low.

 But Jesus Christ, the Son of God came to earth to show the way back home.  “He that hath seen me,” he said, “has seen the Father.  A father gives us life on earth and he gives us his name, and our own from birth.  A father is the first head of state an honored elder sitting at the gate.  In the home his word is law, his will is done until a child becomes a man, starts a family of his own.

He provided daily bread and bowed his head to give thanks to the Lord of Harvest. He forgave you seventy times seven times, demonstrating power measured out with mercy. He led by example and delivered you from evil, set a door on your house, to hold back chaos and evil doers. And for the orphan, and fatherless child, or those who feel cheated by a fatherless home, or a father who could not bother because of malice, misfortune or malfeasance, look again at how Jesus turned a phrase, lift your eyes and into heaven gaze. 

What is God like? He is like the father you knew or the one you wished you had. Jesus taught his disciples to pray “Our Father who Art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name…” Jesus also said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no man cometh unto the Father but by me.” Jesus is the way to the Father’s house, follow him to Eternity.  -id
