One Way to Heaven

October 18th, 2010

 While many would like to believe that there are many different ways to heaven, the fact remains that there is but ONE WAY.   Jesus said, I am the way, the truth and the life” and that “no man can come to the Father, but by me.” (Jn. 14:6)  The reason Jesus is the only Way, is because no one else paid the penalty for our sins, but Christ.  It wasn’t Buddha who took the nails to his hands and feet.  It wasn’t Mohamed who took the crown of thorns to his brow.  It wasn’t Confucius who took the Roman spear to his side, no it was Jesus!  It was only Jesus, who upon considering the sacrifice of His life on the cross, prayed, “Father, if there be any other way, let this cup pass from me, but, not my will, but thine be done.” (Mt. 26:39).  If anyone could be made right with God without Jesus’s sacrificial death for their sin, then Jesus died in vain and his death would  be considered as not needed or unnecessary.  But the fact is that there was no other way.  The fact that there is but “ONE WAY” to heaven is the core crux of the Gospel.  It is the foundational truth that underscores our need for a savior, the truth that will drive us to Christ as our only hope for heaven.
