“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.” Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”
Some people find this claim of exclusivity offensive. In many ways, it seems outrageous and arrogant, and it was no less controversial in Jesus’ day. Why should anyone accept such a claim? How could Jesus even make such a statement? It’s simple: Jesus is the only way to Heaven because God is the only way to God.
Think about it for a minute. If you want to visit me at my house, you’ll need to know me so I can tell you where I live. There are lots of Jim Wallace’s in California, there may even be a few J. Warner Wallace’s. If you want to visit my house, you’re going to need to know the right J. Warner Wallace. I am uniquely qualified to invite you to my house for dinner. I know where I live and I’m the one who can give you permission to join me. If a stranger tried to invite you to my house (even a well-intended, morally virtuous, incredibly wise stranger), I’m afraid you’re not getting in. You’ll need to know me personally if you want an invitation.
In a similar way, well-intended, morally virtuous, incredibly wise religious leaders may try to invite you into God’s presence. But don’t be surprised to find their invitation insufficient. You’ll need to know God personally if you want to sit at His table. You need to accept him as your Lord and savior.
GOD BLESS YOU🙏🙏🙏
