The Only Way to God
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved,” Acts 4:12.
The only way to God is through Jesus. Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection opened the door for all. Through His act of sacrifice, we have access to the Father. To have access to the Father, one must be saved. The sacrifice of Jesus, the love of the Father and the Holy Spirit’s conviction and teaching is an unbroken circle of love, grace and forgiveness bestowed upon all who believe.
Sadly, many people have a distortedly false view of the love of God and one’s eternal home after death. Their worldview is that everyone goes to Heaven after death except those they do not like. Every movie or rock star, every celebrity, business guru or politician goes to Heaven no matter how terrible he lived on earth. Sorry to burst this bubble, but unless a person has at some point in his life, believed that Jesus is the Son of God, that He died, was buried and resurrected on the third day, he will not be celebrating in Heaven.
REFLECTION: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek” (Romans 1:16).
