Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)”. The path to Heaven is found through Jesus Christ, He died for our sins and rose from the dead. This is good news that although we have been separated from God because of our sin, we are united with Him through Jesus. There, is one way and His name is Jesus. The Bible tells us “…God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 1 John 5:11”. The way to Heaven is very simple “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house” (Acts 16:31)”. We can argue whether the Christian life is hard or easy but one thing it’s simple. God laid down a perfect plan of redemption through Jesus without such none of us could go to Heaven. Before Jesus came to earth “The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent (Acts 17:30).” God, has a day planned in which he will judge the world through Jesus Christ, God has guaranteed this will happen and proved it by raising Christ from the dead (Acts 17:31 tells us so). May, God bless and guide us all. Amen
In, the Gospel of Matthew 16 people saw the Son of God who has did miracles yet they tested Him asking for Him to show a sign from Heaven. Jesus, then refuses to show them a sign but does recount when He did multiple the loafs. Without, asking for a sign Peter confesses that “Thou [Jesus] are the Christ the “Son of the Living God”. Jesus, ask all people to “take up there cross” and follow Him. Jesus tells them that He will die and rise again on the third day. Yet, Peter basically says to Jesus ‘you will not die’. It, was the will of God that Jesus die and also God’s will that He would rise from the dead. Jesus, “Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. Acts 2:24” is the Savior of Mankind. God has provided a way to be united with Him and the Only way is through Jesus Christ. “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. John 17:3.” Amen.
In John 4:31-34 the disciples reach out to Jesus to eat as He probably hadn’t eaten in days and been out praying. Jesus replies to them, “Don’t worry about me. I have eaten a meal you don’t know about. John 4:32 (TPT)” Confused the disciples begin to wonder if someone has brought Him food. They failed to understand that Jesus was talking about spiritual food and seeking God. To make it clear Jesus replies, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work. (ESV)” If, only we could all say that our nourishment comes from spiritual food given to us by God! Jesus desires for all of us to come to Him like children and depend on Him as the source for strength. True, fulfillment in life comes from knowing God, not food, no material possession can truly satisfy us like the “bread of life (John 6:35)” which is Jesus Christ the Lord and Savior who came into the world to save all of us. May, we all continue to grown in faith and trust Him. Amen.
