The Church Is Called “The Way” by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

The Church Is Called "The Way" by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings
and slaughter against the disciples of the
Lord, went unto the high priest, And
desired of him letters to Damascus to
the synagogues, that if he found any of
this way … (Acts 9:1-2).

From the underlined portion of the scripture
above, we see that the Church was already
being called “The Way” in the days of the
apostles. It’s very interesting that the Church would be
called “the way,” after Jesus said in John 14:6, “…I am
the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the
Father, but by me.”

This shows our inextricable oneness with Him. As
He is, so are we in this world. We are today, the WAY
to the Father, the WAY to His presence. Hallelujah!
In Acts 22:4, the Apostle Paul, while narrating his
persecution of the Church, said, “I persecuted the
followers of this Way to their death, arresting both men
and women and throwing them into prison” (NIV). Then
again, in Acts 24:14, he said, “However, I admit that
I worship the God of our fathers as a follower of the
Way, which they call a sect…” (NIV).

They called the early Church, “The way.” The
Lord describing Himself said, “I am the way” (John
14:6)! A new and living way was revealed in Jesus; and
because we’re now the bearers of His message, we’ve
become the way.

This is too much for the religious mind, but it’s
what the Word shows. We’re the way to the Father!
We’re not only to show men the presence of God,
but also ordained to usher them in. Blessed be God!
Obadiah 1:21 says, “And saviours shall come up on
mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the
kingdom shall be the LORD’S.”

Note: it doesn’t say, “A saviour shall come up
on mount Zion.” Rather, it says, “Saviours,” meaning
there’d be many saviours from Zion, and we—the
Church—are the saviours from Zion. We’re bearers of
the divine order, carriers and dispensers of eternal
verities. Praise God forevermore!

PRAYER
Heavenly Father, thank you for qualifying me to be
an ambassador of Christ, showing men and women
the way to the Kingdom. I recognize that I’m the
hope and light of the world; I function in this ministry
of reconciliation with everything that I am and with
all that I have, ushering many in my world into the
Kingdom, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
