The Way

on March 10, 2012

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”  John 14:6

It’s so easy today to get caught up in “playing” church.  We might assume the role of a Christian and even be committed to the church.  We may attend each service and event or even have the job of song leader or teacher.  Being active in the church is important.  It can help us grow spiritually and have fellowship with other Christians.  We need to be careful, however, not to just be “playing” church.

Our salvation doesn’t come from our involvement in the church.  No matter how many services we attend or leadership roles we undertake, it won’t save us.  Jesus made this clear in John 14:6 when He said, “no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”  Jesus died on the cross to be the sacrifice for our sins.  We must realize that the only way to get to the Father is through Him.  None of our efforts will ever be enough.  Accepting Christ, believing in Him, and repenting of our sins is the only way to be right with God.

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”  Romans 10:9-10
