Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- September 7, 2012
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
Faith in Jesus Christ is the only way to God. There are many types of experiences and various expressions of worship and religious tradition, but Christ is the “only name under heaven where mankind must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Heaven comes from Jesus, not a denomination. He is the Son of God who died for the sins of humanity. His death on the Cross created a bridge between God and man. No one gets to the Father but by Him.
Jesus is grace—His gift of heaven is not earned or deserved. Jesus is the forgiver—no one can forgive sin but Him. Jesus is God—when we see Him we see the Father. Jesus is King—we bow to no one else in awe and worship. Jesus is the one and only true God—no other gods share His glory and fame. Jesus on earth was fully man and God. He wept, walked on water, healed the diseased, taught, resurrected the dead and rose from the dead.
“Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He (Jesus) appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, and was taken up in glory.” 1 Timothy 3:16
Just like blood travels one way through our body—the blood of Christ must flow by faith through our sin scarred soul to be saved. Other names like Confucius, Buddha and Mohammad can give good thoughts, but only Christ can give salvation—Jesus is the only way to God. Human leaders are limited, human efforts fall short, only belief in Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God gets us to God. Salvation is a one-way street named Jesus. Travel here to enjoy peace, hope, holiness, forgiveness, love and healing.
Since Jesus is Lord, be sure you have humbly submitted to Him as Lord. You are a living sacrifice for your Savior, because He sacrificed His life for your life. Because you believe in Jesus, you behave differently—some radically so. Your Master, Jesus, molds your motives and your gracious words bring Him glory on earth. The most compelling apologetic is your life transformed by Christ. He is the only way to God and real living!
“For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 2:5
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for giving Your Son Jesus as the only way to You.
