The only way to the Father is through the Son ..... Jesus saves and is the ONLY way to Heaven.

Updated on June 17, 2017

Jesus IS the great I AM and the only way to Heaven.

Some of us go around thinking we are pretty good people. Good compared to what? None are good, no, not even one. Certainly not good compared to God. Unfortunately we are not even close. Not even close. Not even in the same zip code. We are sinners through and through. Even from birth. We are born into it. There is nothing holy about being human. Absolutely nothing. We cannot avoid the unavoidable. We are about ourselves whether we like to admit it or not. It is not our righteousness but His righteousness that saves us. It belongs to Him not to us. We are saved through Him and only Him by grace. We are indeed filthy sinners born into sin and on a highway headed in the wrong direction and most of us will end up in Hell. Wow, did I really just say that. Yes, I certainly did and can tell you that that is what I deserve. Yet, Jesus intercedes for you and I. He takes our sin from us and He alone provides the way to an eternal Heaven. It is why being a Christian is such an incredible blessing. So very inspirational and ultimately very exciting to know what God has in mind for us. Just about every other belief system derives itself on the guise of some kind of self reliant theme. For instance some kind of self actualization will propel your soul to Heaven. News flash: That will never happen. You can receive all the zen you want or any other kind of spiritual realization but the reality is you and I need a savior. We have the greatest savior in Jesus Christ. Without Jesus we are stuck in our sin forever. Forever stuck in our sinfulness. The only way to the Father is through the Son. The ONLY way to the Father is through the Son. Otherwise there is no answer to cover sin. We would be stuck in it. Our sin would remain and would keep us so far from God. God's grace is the only answer. We will not make it on our own. It is the greatest gift our Lord could ever give to us and He gives it to us knowing all the time that we are so unworthy. That is how much He loves us. So the very next time you say to yourself I am a pretty good person understand that while you may think you really are, you really are not. You cannot and will not make it on your own. You are not even close. Your only saving grace is Jesus Christ alone. He saves you and it is not a single thing that you do. Once again left to our own accord we would all be doomed. It should truly humble all of us. God loves and God provides. Get this right as it is imperative to your salvation. He is the only way. Here are some bible verses highlighting the savior of the world:

Acts 4:12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under Heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

Matthew 7:13 "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it."

John 4:26 Jesus said to her, " I who speak to you am He."

John 10:17 "Therefore my Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again."

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, " I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."

God bless always.

      Jesus is the Great I Am and the only way to heaven is not just a concept, it is substantiated TRUTH!

      I appreciate the author of this post and the others by Damian Gemma.

      It is absolutely imperative for all to at least learn about the life, miracles, ministry, crucifixion and ressurection of Jesus Christ.

      When we study, absorb and become educated about God’s Word and His truth and promise, we of course are inspired and have hope. I, as one who believes and receives, not only have hope but am certain that Jesus Christ is our one and only Savior and through our faith by grace we have everlasting life.

      Live with love in your heart for others and pray to God. Have conversations with Him; He already knows but wants to hear from us.

      He is our rock, refuge, strength and redeemer. His Holy Spirit lives in us and guides us. On the other side of heartache, tragedy and despair is our God given destination. God will show you your purpose and give you the ability to succeed. All is for His glory and know that you never walk alone.

      God bless you always
