Today we’ll read Deuteronomy chapter 7, John 14 and Psalm 53, from the New American Standard Bible.
May God bless the reading of His Word.
We live in a time that supposedly puts tolerance at the top of the list of political correctness. We have become a pluralistic society. Except when it comes to Christianity. We are not allowed to say out loud, in public, what the Bible teaches about many things. And we especially can’t say that Jesus is the only way to God. If we do, we’re called close-minded bigots.
“How,” they say, “can you say that there is only one way to God? Surely there are many ways, many roads.”
Our reply only needs to point to what Jesus said in today’s reading:
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”
It is not *me* who is narrow and exclusive. It is Jesus. No one comes to the Father except through Him.
You want to talk about many ways? Many roads?
In Matthew, Jesus said, “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.”
Yes. The way to God is exclusive and narrow. That’s the bad news. The Good News is that God loved the world so much that *whoever* believes in Jesus will be saved. The world. Whoever. *All* are invited. Good news, indeed.
Until tomorrow, may God bless you richly. I’m Steve Webb.
