Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6 ESV)
In today’s culture, this belief that Jesus is the only way to God is not widely held. In fact, it is becoming viewed more and more as a hate crime because it appears to be intolerant of other religions and beliefs. But Jesus saw the same thing in his own day when the religious leaders accused Jesus of doing miracles by the power of Beelzebub. Yes, Jesus’ words are exclusive. Salvation is only given to those who believe in Jesus. But his words are also inclusive as they are given to all. The atheist, the Muslim, the budhist, are all invited to know the truth. The gospel is for all who believe, no matter what race or cultural standing. Jesus said these words not because he hated but because he loved. To keep this truth from people so that no one finds God is an act of hate. Jesus loves.
How about you? How are you trying to get to God? Do you believe Jesus’ words? Do you hold this truth back from people so as not to offend them or do you share it with people, even if it means being called intolerant?
Ask God to give you opportunities to invite others to know Jesus.
McCheyne’s Bible Reading Plan: 2 Sa 4-5, 1 Co 15, Ez 13, Jn 14
Yes, I am trying to get to God and I believe in Jesus. I try to share Jesus with others by telling them a verse when they get hurt.
I am coming to God through Jesus. I love him and I pray to him. I talk about Jesus with my friends and with my papa.
I’m trying to get God by glorifying him and loving him. Yes I believe in jesus.And I do not hold the good news back.
I am trying to read the bible and understand it more. I am on 2 kings 3 at church. And believe in Jesus. I share about Jesus but I haven’t told them that he is the only way. Like if I see someone really struggling I can tell them Jesus is the only way and only savior. I am scared to tell the donut man because he will probably be like…what. I could buy a bible and leave it on the counter with a sticky note saying “read this.”. I can pray for him every day.
I think that i am becoming more like jesus in a sense ,but in another sense i am nothing like him . because i sin by not obeying my parents but iam becoming better because i can catch myself and say to myself oh
my dad told me not to do this, and be better at obeying for jesus,
Accepting jesus has made a difference in my life and has helped me to get to god and build a better relationship.
I’m trying to get to god by doing these devotional and going to church.yes, I believe everything jesus says. Yes I try to tell every time I get the chance.
