    Thanks for the wonderful article, the character 道 in chinse also have this meaning and in fact when i study on English and Chinese that word in John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The “Word” in Chinese translate as 道 and in Greek called Logos and in John 1:17 it relate to Jesus. This “Word” associate with creation, divine revelation, wisdom, law of Moses etc. reveal to us the “Way” which is Jesus.
    There are a lot related to this word 道 and it include the way the truth and the life.

    This is a great reminder for me too, to lead people understand and direct them to the true way of life, guide them to the way of Jesus and bring them life.
    Sometimes it is so sad to see Japanese who is so polite and kind type of people and yet so many of them don’t know Christ.
    I have the burden of doing mission in Japan too but doesn’t have much faith to go on full missionary yet.

    Keep up the good work, may God bless you abundantly and through you many people will come to know God.
