Verse of the Day: John 14:6
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” – John 14:6
It is important that we grasp this truth so that we can counter the belief that there are many roads that lead to God. Jesus said He was the only way to the Father. Paul said in his letter to the Romans, “that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;” Romans 10:9. This counter’s the ideas of the post-Modernists who believes there is no absolute truth, but that everyone has their own truth which they must follow.
We must stand strong in the reality that Jesus is the only way to salvation and any relationship with God; not to argue in anger but to speak in love. They may try to convince you they are on a path to God, but a different one. However, the truth is there is no other way. It is our job to live our lives as though we see this as absolute truth so they can see that light in us and desire it themselves. This is our role as Christians here. To lead people to the true God via the only path available, that being through the shed blood of Christ and all that entails.
