“There Is Only One Way”
Cedar Point Amusement Park is very popular in our Indiana area. Yes, it is in Ohio, some 3 & ½ hours away, but it has some of the most up-to-date rides in the US. They are always adding more, replacing the old with the new.
Now, as I look on a map, there are many ways to get to Cedar Point. If there was only one way to get o the park, do you think the people would stay at home lamenting that they can only go to the park that one way? No, they would all be pushing and shoving each other trying to get to that park first.
Please read the following verses. John 14:1-14
1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.” 5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” 6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” 8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us.” 9 Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. 12 I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
Jesus makes the statement of truth that He is the only way to God the father. And so many people will not accept that way. So they argue there should be many ways.
Instead of arguing with the Lord, why can’t unbelievers be glad there is a way, and instead of arguing about it, journey in that way? Aaaah, the downfalls of human choice. We serve a Lord that has given us a choice. Please make Him your choice. Choose His way for all decisions.
You all have a tremendous day in the Lord,
Let everything that has breath (this includes you) Praise and thank the Lord.
Be a Blessing;
