The uniqueness of Jesus as the only way
December 8, 2010
"And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."
I just love Christmas time! But one thing about this time of year that always makes me stop and think is the fact that it's the only time when people who want nothing to do with Jesus sing about him being their Savior!
Now, I'd just love to stop someone whom I know isn't a believer in the middle of the second verse of ‘Silent Night' and ask them, "Do you really believe all that?" And you know what I bet I'd hear? "Well, Jesus was a good teacher and a moral leader, but not really God."
I think it was C.S. Lewis who first gave us the trilemma that every person faces concerning Jesus Christ. He said,
Either Jesus was a liar who claimed to be God even though He knew He wasn't, he was some kind of a lunatic who thought he was God but wasn't, or else Jesus Christ was Lord of life. Away with this business of saying that Jesus Christ was just a good man or a great moral teacher; because if Jesus Christ is not God, Jesus Christ is not good! Either Jesus is mad, bad, or he is truly God. And Jesus said he is the only way to God. So if he is just one of many ways, that would make him crazy or a liar!
So as you interact with lost friends and family this Christmas season, ask them what they do with Jesus. Engage them in thoughtful, meaningful conversation about what the Bible says about Jesus and how they can have a relationship with him. And show them the love of Christ!
JESUS IS THE ONE TRUE SON OF GOD AND CAME TO DIE FOR THE WORLD. SO TELL OTHERS ABOUT HIM!
MY GIFT TO YOU!
I sincerely hope you will request my 10-message series called Straight Up, where I tackle 10 tough questions we all face. Like "When Does Life Begin?" and "Can Love Last a Lifetime?", "Can You Trust the Bible?", and "Are All Religions the Same?"
After listening, you'll be more equipped to live a confident life, knowing the truth and trusting the promises of Christ!
