Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
There are three essential truths that all believers must remember in order to walk closely with the Lord Jesus. They’re truths that we as Christians must fearlessly defend and declare when we tell others about Christ.
First, as Jesus says in today’s verse, He is the only way to God. Standing up and declaring that Jesus Christ alone is God…that there’s only one name given among men where by we must be saved…is an explosive truth that divides people. But it’s a truth you and I must be willing to tell others.
Second, Jesus’ death on the cross atoned for the sins of the whole world. In our day and time, you can get away with talking about Jesus being a great moral teacher, an influential leader, or even a revolutionary. But start talking about Jesus dying for our sins, and people bristle. This truth goes against the pride and the arrogance and the ego of our culture!
Third, God is sovereign over the destinies of human beings. He has chosen each of us who is saved. This is a difficult truth, but the Bible says in Ephesians 1:3-4, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him.”
Now, when you share Christ, someone may say, “How do I know I am chosen?” The answer is simple—ask Jesus into your life right now and you will know you are chosen!
So I hope you will take time today to share the good news of Jesus Christ with someone you know. It is the only truth by which any man or woman can be saved!
TAKE TIME TODAY TO SHARE THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST WITH SOMEONE YOU KNOW.
