The Way

Jesus, our way to the Father,
a path alight with his love.
Paved with unconditional acceptance,
inlaid with promises from above.

Come walk the way to the Father.
The journey, though its not far at all,
asks from us trust and vulnerability.
It needs us to open a door.

A door to the heart's own centre.
A place he would dwell within.
The way doesn't lead beyond us, to Heaven.
The way is always deeper in.

Jesus, our way to the Father,
he walks the path with us.
As Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
he's our guide, our path, and our residence.

It is not far to the Father above,
Jesus, with his blood, has made a way.
For you to not only be acceptable - but adored,
the apple of your Father's eye.

Jesus, our way to the Father.
Let the truth open your eyes to Him,
and as the Holy Spirit indwells you,
believe that  - "I am his and he is mine".

"I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No-one comes to the Father except through me". John 14:6

"I will only reveal myself to those who love me and obey me.  The Father will love them too, and we will come to them and live with them...When the Father sends the comforter... and by the comforter I mean the Holy Spirit - he will teach you much." John 14:23, 26

"I will ask the Father and he will given you another comforter, and he will never leave you.  He is the Holy Spiri, the Spirit who leads you into all truth.  The world at large cannot receive him, for it isn't looking for him and doesn't recognise him.  But you do, for he lives with you now and someday shall be in you". John 14:15-17

''When you draw close to God, God will draw close to you... let your hearts be filled with God alone." James 4:8

"I will give you a new heart... and put a new spirit within you." Ezekiel 36:26

"To show that we are God's children, God sent the spirit of the son into our hearts, the spirit who cries out 'Father, my Father'." Gal 4:4-7
