ONLY ONE WAY TO GOD! 10-2-2011

Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father(God) except through me.” (Jn.14:6 NIV)  Peter said, “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12 NIV)  Paul said, “For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men...” (1 Tim.2:5-6 NIV)
The same essential message was declared by the major players in the New Testament Scriptures; Jesus, Peter and Paul.  Jesus told his followers to go into all the world with this good news.  God has made a way so mankind could be reconciled to their maker.  The plan, hidden in God for centuries, now was made manifest.  It was different in that it was a salvation that came from God and not man.  God had done for man what was needed, but what man could not accomplish.  Only God could do this..

“...God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing (charging) their trespasses unto them...” (2Co..5:19 KJV)  “You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly...God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Ro.5:6,8 NIV)  God has done for us, what we could not do, and we are to tell everyone the good news.  God freely offers you forgiveness and a new life.

It is offered free only through this one who died for us and rose again.  Jesus Christ is the way.  He declared it while still on the earth, and those disciples who followed made the same claim.  There is only one way; there is only one savior.  Many are proclaiming different ways; they will prove false. Those who open their hearts to Christ, come to him and trust him will find that what God promises is real.  Prove it for yourself!
