There is only OneWay, given to us by God, to be forgiven of all sin, obtain eternal salvation and gain entry into Heaven: accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. No other person, method or ritual can give us eternal life. Attempting to be “open-minded” and tolerant, some people assert that all religions are equally valid paths to God, that there are “many ways” to Heaven. This is so far from the Truth.
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it”. (NIV) Matthew 7:13-14 [show]Matthew 7:13-14
"Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. (ESV)
In a free society, people have the right to their religious opinions, but this does not guarantee that their ideas are right. God does not accept man-made religion as a substitute for faith in Jesus Christ. He has provided just OneWay – Jesus Christ.
Today we are bombarded with relentless appeals to go in various directions. Television advertising alone places hundreds of options before us, in addition to appeals made by political parties, cults, false religions and dozens of other groups. Factor in the internet and the options are almost limitless.
If you find yourself pulled in many directions, remember that God teaches the humble His way (Psalm 25:4-5 [show]Psalm 25:4-5
Make me to know your ways, O LORD;
teach me your paths.
Lead me in your truth and teach me,
for you are the God of my salvation;
for you I wait all the day long.
It is never too early or too late in our lives to come to Christ. Some are blessed to find their way at an early age, others come to know Him later in life. Unfortunately, many go on to live out lives of loneliness, emptiness and desperation. Some never hear His word; many more hear it and simply choose to reject Him.
This world has a way of hardening our hearts, creating walls and crust, things that can become barriers to knowing and accepting Christ. Some do not find their way to Him until life beats them down to their knees, hopelessness overwhelms them, the “walls” tumble down and they then cry out for help. Sadly, many reject Christ and their lives end never knowing Him. Life doesn’t have to be lived or end like that, but it is by many, every day.
If you can’t get beyond the fact that we live in a spiritual world, the enemy (Satan) has been successful in keeping you blinded. The truth is, this is a world of good and evil. We live in a world of “free will”. There is a Heaven and a hell. Understand, you can and will serve only one Master. That choice is yours to make.
This life is very short. Eternity is a VERY long time. Have you ever thought about what happens to your soul when you take your last breath?
You need to get this right, but not just for yourself. How about your parents, your brothers and sisters, your spouse, your children and grandchildren, your friends? They all need to know the TRUTH. God calls us to reach out to others and share His gospel with them. You cannot share that which you do not possess.
Don’t passively stand by and miss life’s truly precious opportunities. Live with a purpose. Make your life significant and eternal in reach. Open your heart, do not reject Jesus. Live out your life with a Godly, eternal purpose.
“May I not waste precious time wandering Lord, when I can come directly to You and seek direction for my life”.
