John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me."
Back when I was a lad, if you said that you were a Christian, if you were a person who went to church every Sunday, well that was something people respected. My, how things have changed!
I don’t know if you happen to have noticed this, but it seems to me that someone’s been cranking up the volume of atheism, secularism, humanism, pluralism and a whole bunch of other “ism’s” over these last few years.
At this point in time, they seem to be screaming at us, to give up this out-dated, irrelevant belief we have in the God of the Bible. They seem to be shouting down God’s unchanging truth, louder and louder. To be branded a Christian these days is getting harder and harder.
How dare you insist that your God exists or that He’s the only god or that the out-dated morals of the Bible apply to us today? How dare you insist that Jesus is the only way? How dare you?
And so, confronted with what is today, a relentless onslaught on the very foundations of their faith, many Christians around the world and yes, even churches around the world, are getting wobbly about their God and who He is and what he stands for.
And yet no matter how loud they shout, Jesus is still the way, the truth and the life and no one can come to the Father except through Him. No one.
John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me.”
Don’t forsake Jesus. Stand firm in Him, because He is the Way. The only Way. And His love, His grace, His mercy are what God wants you to share with the people who are shouting at you.
That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
