πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Which Way to Heaven?

What is the way to heaven? It is interesting to read in God’s Word what many think about this. In Proverbs 14:12 we read:

β€œThere is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

What are some of these β€œways” that β€œseem right” to men, leading them to hope for heaven? Joining a church? Being baptized? Doing one’s best? Keeping the Ten Commandments? Loving one’s neighbor as himself? These are a few of the ways that men follow, hoping to gain eternal life, but they all come under one heading: β€œDo good.”

But what do the Scriptures say about this? In the Gospel according to John there are recorded for us seven β€œI ams,” which the Lord Jesus Christ used in speaking of Himself.

One of these is found in John 14:6:

β€œI am the way, the truth and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by Me.”

This passage has a double significance, since it was not only the declaration of the Lord Jesus Christ, but at the same time a declaration of the divinely inspired Scriptures. From this verse we learn not only that Jesus is the only way to the Father, but also that He is β€œthe truth” to be believed and trusted in. Thus we can believe the Lord Jesus when He claims to be the way to heaven.

But according to this passage He is also β€œthe life.” As we place our faith in Him as the One who died on the cross for us, we receive eternal life. β€œHe died that we might live.” source

[…] eternal fires of hell. It’s not too narrow to say there is only one way to God. There is only one way that we could be saved from our sins: by Christ’s all-sufficient payment for sin at the Cross and His resurrection. […]

Bible Verse for 1/13/21

To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. — 2 Corinthians 5:19-20
