“JESUS SAITH UNTO HIM, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER BUT BY ME.” – JOHN 14:16
Jesus Christ, the sinless Son of God gives his own beautiful words above, clearing all the confusion as to how a man gains eternal life. Notice that Jesus did not say “I am the Baptist Way – I am the Methodist Way – I am the Catholic Way -No, he simply said “I AM THE WAY.”
Jesus Himself Reminds Us That There Is:
THE WAY (Not many ways)
THE TRUTH (Not many options)
THE LIFE (Eternal Life with God)
The Way is the Jesus Way
“I AM THE WAY” – ONLY CHRIST lived without sin – died for sin – and arose victorious over sin and death.
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the spirit.” – 1 Peter 3:18
The Bible, God’s Word alone gives us THE TRUTH. Only the BIBLE tells us how to be saved.
1. THE BIBLE TELLS OUR NEED:
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” – Romans 3:23
2. THE BIBLE TELLS THE RESULT OF SIN:
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.” – Romans 6:23
3. THE BIBLE TELLS OF CHRIST’S WORK:
“For he (God) hath made him (Jesus) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; That we might be made the righteousness of God in him. – II Corinthians 5:21
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have EVERLASTING LIFE.” – John 3:16
THE LIFE is everlasting life, offered freely to all who believe. We receive THE LIFE by BELIEVING and RECEIVING Christ as Saviour. THE LIFE is to be received:
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become that sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” – John 1:12
Receive Him Today
Lord Jesus, I now realize that you are the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I now turn from my sin to Christ my Saviour. I now receive you into my life. Thank you for giving me eternal life.
