From Pastor Gary…
Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father except through me.” (John 14:6)
When Adam and Eve were deceived by Satan in the Garden of Eden, sin entered the world. We live in a world that suffers the effects of sin. It brought all the problems we face as we live our lives. Sin marred people’s relationship with each other and brought physical death. Also, man’s relationship with God was severed. All people since Adam and Eve have been conceived and born into a sin nature that separates us from a holy God. We are all born spiritually dead. To die physically while spiritually dead results in eternal death, that is, eternal separation from God. Yet God in his mercy and grace provided for us a way back to Him. He sent his Son, Jesus Christ to bridge the gap that separates people from God.
Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Jesus is not one of many ways, He is the only way. He is the truth. The words He spoke were the very words God. In His life, death, and resurrection, Jesus fulfilled every truth the Old Testament prophets spoke about the Messiah. Jesus is the life. All who, by faith, trust in the atoning work of Christ have “passed from death to life” (John 5:24). Jesus truly is “The way, the truth, and the life.” What a wonderful God we have! He shows us his love by providing the way back to a relationship with Him.
Verse of the Day:
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life ion Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6: 23)
