One Way~Have you ever heard someone say something to the effect of “All roads lead to heaven,” or “It doesn’t matter what you believe as long as your are sincere.”That may be someone’s opinion—but does that matter?What is important is what God says.Jesus Christ—one member of the Triune God—told Thomas, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6b).
Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven!He is also the source of all truth, and the source of all life.Spiritually dead people cannot comprehend any of these great facts.When a person is born a second time (spiritual life added to their physical life), then they get it.Once they have it, they have a deep inner peace—which is the subject of this passage (John 14:1-6).
Throughout recorded history there has been only One who came from heaven to live amongst us.Only One Man has ever lived a perfect sinless life.Only One Man qualified to die in our place to pay the penalty of our sin.Only One Man rose from the dead.Only One is now seated on the right hand of God.Only One has paid the penalty of your sin.The fully-God and fully-human (while on earth) Jesus Christ—The Messiah.
Don’t Miss This~It is not a question of whether or not you will bow before this One.Rather, the question is when will you bow before Him.There is coming a time—which many believe is not far away—when you will not have the choice to bow to Him as your Savior.After that you will bow—but to Him who then is your Judge.
Old Testament~“Look to Me, and be saved, all you ends of the earth!For I am God, and there is no other.I have sworn by Myself; the word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, that to Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall take an oath.He shall say, ‘Surely in the Lord I have righteousness and strength.To Him men shall come, and all shall be ashamed who are incensed against Him’” (Isaiah 45:22-24).
New Testament~“For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.For it is written: ‘As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.’So then each of us shall give account of himself to God” (Romans 14:10-12).
the key question: “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15). This is the most important question you will ever answer. If you do not answer it, or answer it incorrectly, you have made the biggest mistake anyone can make!
