Day 18 / John Study / She Reads Truth
THE ONLY WAY
I’ve heard it said, many times, by many different people…
“There isn’t just one way to God.” (Oprah made this statement famous)
“I’m a good person, I try to “do right” most of the time…that’s all that matters.
But, Jesus makes it very clear…HE is the ONLY way. If we believe Jesus to be a man of truth, then there is NO room for doubt.
Many believe Jesus to be a great teacher, a wise and honorable man…but not God. Hmmmm, BUT a great teacher and a wise and honorable man would not make false claims, if He did than He would just be a liar, right?
In this age of “political correctness” and fear of offending it is difficult to take this hard line…we most certainly meet opposition. Yet, if we claim Jesus as our Savior, we must also claim Him as our Judge. He is both. We can’t all be right. If we do not believe in an ultimate truth, than there is no truth.
Love was Jesus’ first priority, but He also spoke truth. (He is truth) We are called to do the same. To LOVE first…but to honor God by sharing who He is and who He made us to be…and in the process, we must share the whole truth…that HE IS THE (ONLY) WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE for all people.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you know Me, you will also know My Father. From now on you do know Him and have seen Him.” - John 14:6-7
May the Lord give us the ability to speak truth in love, so that others might hear.
