Road to God

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6

One of the strongest statements made by Jesus is this scripture. What is Jesus revealing to us here? He’s revealing that he is the only way to God and Heaven. We live in a world that preaches there are many roads to heaven. But make no mistake about it, Jesus is the only way to Heaven.

And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. Exodus 3:14

Notice in the beginning of his statement he identifies himself as “I AM”. Jesus has identified himself as “I AM” seven times throughout his ministry. Why? Because Jesus is revealing his unity with God, The Jews understood this because they knew the scriptures of the Torah. When you understand this you understand Jesus is speaking by the authority of God

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God Romans 3:23

So why is Jesus the only way? The simple answer is sin, we are all sinners and all have fallen short to the glory of God. We need to understand that sin separates us from God because its an act of rebellion to God. Nobody has ever walked the planet sinless except Jesus Christ

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23

We need to understand the seriousness of sin, sin equals death. Without Jesus we will perish, but because Jesus took the punishment for our sins we can be granted eternal life.

He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2

Jesus is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, nobody else could have accomplished this because Jesus was the only one who is sinless and righteous. The word became flesh so we can live

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 word “begotten” means one of a kind or unique. Jesus is the only one, the Messiah, The Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world. That is why he is The Truth Life and Way to Heaven in Jesus Name Amen
