Only One Way. John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the trust, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

In our culture, almost anything goes. The overwhelming idea is: whatever works for you. It’s okay to believe in God, but it’s not acceptable to suggest there is only one way to know Him.

The problem is that if you believe in Christ, you must also believe His words. He did not say, “I am a way.” He said, “I am THE way.” Think about it. If anything would work, why suffer? If anything else could save us, why would God send His son?

Isaiah 43:10-11 “Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no savior.” First, understand that God does want us to know Him. It’s why He sent His son in the first place. Second, recognize that there is only one Savior and put your trust in Him. Perhaps you have long since accepted that only Christ can save you, but have you really accepted that only He can save somebody else? Knowing how much others need Christ motivates us to tell them about Him. After all, “how, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?” Romans 10:14. Tell someone about the Savior today!

Today, thank God for sending the Savior. Pray for those who do not know Him, those who live and work right around you as well as those in foreign lands. Romans 10:14-15 “How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!” Pray that God will send His people to preach good news and ask Him to give you opportunities today to share His love with someone.
