Word-Filled Wednesday ~#37~ Only One Way?

PASSAGE: "And the LORD God commanded the man, 'You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.' . . . When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it." ~Gen. 2:16, 17; 3:6.

"Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'" ~John 14:6.

LESSON LEARNED: Many non-Christians often say "There can't be Only One Way to be saved and spend eternity with God in heaven."

My response is often: "Why not?" God gave Adam and Eve EVERYTHING a human being could ever desire, INCLUDING a deep, intimate relationship with their Creator God. And yet . . . they did the One Thing He commanded them NOT to do. If they had all that and did the One Thing they were told not to do, my response is why should He have even given the human race a second opportunity for salvation AT ALL? But He did. He chose to send His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, to die as a once-for-all payment for our sins. All we have to do is accept it.

And He's a big God, He doesn't need us like we need Him; but He DESIRES relationship with little ol' us. Amazing, all in itself. And He goes to such amazing measures to draw us to Himself: everything from sunrises and sunsets, to the availability of His written Word in almost every language, to music to worship Him by in almost every genre and taste, to donkeys that talk, to walking this very earth in human form. What an amazing God!

He did all this for all of us ~ for you. Reach out to His One Source of salvation, grab-hold, believe and say, "Dear God, I know I have sinned against You, I repent of my sins and I want to spend the rest of my life loving and serving You. In Jesus' Name, AMEN."

And heaven rejoices! (Luke 15:10)

  1. Isn't it amazing how "man" tries to improve on everything! I'm sure you've heard who is invited to participate in the 9-11 memorial service in D.C.-And who is blatently absent! I totally agree with your above comments - but more importantly I am blessed to believe God's Word - the only authority - thanks for quoting and for standing up for what is true! I always enjoy your posts!
    Have a blessed day,

  2. It blows my mind to think of the amazing love of God. To send His son to die for someone who doesn't accept Him or believe in Him. Truly amazing love! Thanks Kim for sharing!
