One Way Sign
In the series, Road Signs of the Bible, I plan to talk about the “One Way Sign”. When we see the One Way sign we know we can only go that way the arrow points. If we go the other way we are going the wrong way. In order to get to Heaven, there is only one way as well. That is through Jesus Christ. Jesus is telling us he will come back again in John 14. Thomas ask Jesus how can we know we will go where you are going and how can we go that way? Jesus gave Thomas a simple, but can be hard path. A one way path. John 14:6 tells us Jesus replied to Thomas. If you have a Bible with the letters in red, this will be in red. This is what Jesus replied.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
Jesus shows us there is no other one, only one way. That is through Him. It’s a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, not a religion. There is no adding things on how to get saved. You are saved by the grace of God. Our works nor deeds don’t get us to Heaven. Ephesians 2:8-9. Religious sacraments cannot get us to heaven either. There is no other name that can save you!
Jesus also shows us he is our intercessor. We cannot see the Father, God, unless we go through Christ. We must have a total 100% surrender to Him. That is why it is a one way street. It is simple, Christ died for our sins, His Blood was shed for us. As a Christian we can’t live as we wish. We must strive to be Christ-like. If you love Christ you will keep His commandments. Also if you are of Christ, you are of the vine, which means you will show fruit that you are saved.
