Which road are you on?
I met a man once who was walking across the U.S. He’d left his job for a few months to see the country and delve into his spirituality.
After talking with him, I realized he’s like a lot of people. He believes there are many roads to God and you just have to find the one you want.
But the Bible says that’s not true. It says there aren’t many different ways to God. There’s only one way -? and it’s through Jesus Christ.
In John 14:6, Jesus Himself makes that claim. He says, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Two principles stand out in that verse:
a) Jesus is the way.
b) No one’s accepted by God without going through Jesus.
This claim by Jesus -? and by people who believe the Bible -? has been said to be extremely narrow by some. I agree. But the Bible doesn’t allow other options for those seeking to be saved from their sin. It’s the way God’s designed it.
In Matthew 7:13-14, Jesus tells us that to enter heaven, we need to “enter by the narrow gate (Jesus); 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 which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
So the road to God is truly narrow. But He also invites all who wish to walk it ? by trusting in Christ ? to do so. “Whosoever will, may come,” He said.
He won’t exclude anyone who comes to Him through Christ.
Which road are you on? Is Christ walking with you?
“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
