Is Jesus the only way?
There is a way that seems right unto a man but the end is destruction proverbs 14:12
You are possibly reading this with the mindset that you already have an answer. But hold on till the end before you conclude. Jesus Christ is not the only way. Oprah Winfrey said it years ago and I agree with her. There are many ways to get in touch with the spiritual. It could be by meditation, a religious set of rules procedures and mannerisms, by prayers, reaching out to sick and less privileged, going to serene mountain tops or at the bottom of the ocean eating mouth watering destiny modifying foods among others , the list is endless. I’m sure you would agree that we have other ways.
With that being addressed, one needs proof. We need to be more open minded to this question. The only lying way to where, what or who? Is Jesus Christ the way to hell fire? To all round answered prayers like an answering machine? To having your way all the time? Or is Jesus Christ the way to the Father? Aha! Jesus is certainly the way to someone and somewhere and interestingly so, he is the only way to God Almighty. Other ways may seem right, feel right, be thought to be right but aren’t the sure way. Don’t follow religiously brain washed without asking questions. HE said I AM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME. John 14:6
Herein lies a big problem. There are several other religions in the world and many of the followers get spiritual experiences, answers to prayers etc. But eternity with Abba is only hidden in Christ. Some waited for this God man, the Messiah, yeshua, but didn’t know neither did they recognise him when he came. Others possibly hadn’t heard and needed good folks to tell them. Thus the great commission to share the good news with all yet some heard saw and knew but simply refused to acknowledge. The samaritan woman in John chapter 4 expected him to show her and her folk the way to the father. ..and he did, the thief on the cross couldn’t care less and he missed the father. Some others fight the possibility of God having a son. An only begotten son and rather follow a prophet who wasn’t sure of his end or destination.
It would suffice to say that this is a leadership nightmare. If I know where I want to go I would rather take descriptions from one who has been there. John 13:3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God. It’s like picking a mentor, a leadership coach. Do I want to have an awesome experience here and in the hereafter? Then I need to locate a leader who has been AND is going to or is experiencing same.
Here is the greatest proof. Don’t take my word for it. I dare you to give this a try. The man Jesus said in Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.for in Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Saved from a meaningless life. Do you seek a way or the only way? Jesus is the only way to rest from nonstop bouts of depression, affliction, abuse, negative thoughts, suicidal thought, low self esteem, masturbation, addiction, manipulation, poverty, financial instability, anorexia, bulimia, health challenges, see abuse and addiction, the list is endless.
He wants to have a relationship with you. Yes , simple confused broken down you. You feel your world is crashing in but the only way out of all the mess is to invite and experience Jesus. How? Simply say this short prayer out loud…
LORD JESUS , I BELIEVE YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD, YOU DIED FOR MY SINS AND YOU ARE THE ONLY WAY OUT OF TROUBLE I TO REST. I BELIEVE YOU ARE LORD AND I CONFESS IT OUT LOUD.
My proof to you is experiential. Come, taste and see that the Lord is good. Ask Him yourself to reveal Himself to you. There is no technique to communicating with Jesus Christ. Simple child-like approach and believe is super sufficient. Don’t take my word for it—try it out yourself and I would be glad to hear your feedback. Is Jesus Christ the only way to and amazing life? You bet yourself.
