walk in the word
There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12
We live in a day of options and alternatives. Marketers know that people like choices. Just think of how many cell phone plans there are from which you can choose or how many cable television channels you can flip through. Years ago the hamburger chain was on to something when they said ‘have it your way.’
But we worship and serve a God who says He is the one and only way and He presents no ‘build-your-own-way to salvation’ plan. The God of the Bible offers one way to eternal life. And that’s it.
Let’s look at a couple passages of Scripture that speak to this truth.
There’s just one God; not our god for us here, but another god for them over there.
In addition to that, there’s only one way to this one God.
One God. One way. One name.
Ephesians 4:4-6 says, “There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.” Renew your mind with this truth: God is about ones. This is absolute, non-negotiable, unchanging, eternal truth.
While we may want to have it our way, God requires we do it His way. Why?—reason #1: He is God and we are not. Reason #2: His plan is the most phenomenal plan of the universe, beyond what we could ask or think, Ephesians 3:20 says. But we must choose it.
God has a big heart of love for everyone who wants to get on His program, but He has a hand of judgment for everyone who pursues an alternate plan. Second Chronicles 13:12 says, “O sons of Israel, do not fight against the Lord God of your fathers, for you will not succeed.”
Are you among the army of followers of Christ on this one road to heaven? Again, there is only one God and one way—by grace through faith, through most precious name under heaven by which any of us can be saved and that one is Jesus Christ. And friend, please hear my heart in this–not only is He the only way, but He is the only one who can satisfy your hearts deepest longing and your life’s greatest need. Aren’t you tired of your own plan?
