There are many paths to spirituality, but there is only one path that leads to eternity in heaven with our Heavenly Father. It is the path that is less traveled. The only way to discover it is through Jesus Christ and adhering to the words that came from Him as He began His ministry in Galilee. He came preaching, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Matthew 7:13-14 Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way that leads to life, and there are few who find it.
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Will you be one of the few who discover this path or will you be among those that spend their lives listening to the myriad of voices within our culture and world who are screaming for your attention? This is a question we must all come to grips with.
John 20:31 ...but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.
Special Marks of Jesus' Divinity - John 1:1-18.
John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
John starts out by showing and proclaiming that Jesus was God from the beginning. He then goes on to show us how to respond, from the heart, to Jesus as Lord and Savior.
- Jesus Is Revealed as Being Pre-existent with the Father.
- He Is Shown and Revealed as the Creator of the Universe.
- He Is Proclaimed As Life.
- Jesus Is Proclaimed as the Light of the World.
- Jesus Was Also Proclaimed As Being Full Of Grace And Truth.
We must see Jesus as He is, God's ultimate Word of revelation. We must hear His Word, and come to understand and believe in Him. When we trust ourselves to Jesus, forever, and daily, we will learn what it means to "have eternal life in Him."
As a man, Jesus walked our earth and knew our nature and weaknesses. But now, He has returned to "the right hand of the Majesty in heaven." His work has been accomplished through the Blood that was poured out for us. He has provided salvation to make us whole.
1 Peter 1:18-19 knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.
