Andrew Womack's devotional for today is an important one for each of us to know in order to share this TRUTH with the unbelievers that we know!
THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO THE FATHER
John 14:5 "Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?"
Thomas knew Jesus. He just didn't realize Jesus was "the way." Likewise, people today know portions of God's Word but they don't realize that God's Word is their way to victory. Often, people cry out for God to speak to them while their Bible lays unopened on their nightstand. God has spoken to us through His Word. We just need to believe it and receive its truths as our way to victory.
Jesus didn't say: "I am a way, a truth, and a life." He claimed to be the only way, truth, and life. No man can come to the Father except through Jesus. This means that anyone who claims to honor Jesus while advocating other ways to get to God, truth, or life, besides Jesus, is deceived or a deceiver.
Jesus' claims about Himself, of which there is only one, left no room for other means to salvation. He is either who He says He is, or He is the greatest deceiver of all time. His own statements about Himself leave no other alternatives. Therefore, other religions that recognize Jesus and His teachings as wonderful examples, but don't believe He is the only way to achieve salvation, are false.
The Word of God is a spiritual book written under the direction of the Holy Spirit. It was not written to our head but to the innermost part of our heart. This is why some people find the Bible so hard to understand. They are trying to comprehend it using only their mind. The Word of God has to inspire our heart before it can enlighten our mind.
There IS only ONE WAY, ONE TRUTH and ONE LIFE that was given for all! The only question that will be asked of any of us is: What have you done with JESUS? If you would like to receive JESUS as YOUR Lord and personal Savior today, pray this prayer, believing in your heart what the Word of God says about Him, and what JESUS said about Himself!
Almighty God, I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus Christ came to this earth, died on the cross for me, was raised from the dead, and is now seated at Your right hand. I accept and receive Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour and I invite Him to come into my heart and become Lord over my life. I thank You now Father, for welcoming me into Your family. You are my Father. I am Your child. Jesus is my Lord! Amen.
AMEN! NOW you are a child of the Living God, with the Spirit of God living IN you! HALLELUJAH!!! Check out our website through the link on the left and get to know more about this wonderful New LIfe that you have just received! Here is Hillsong with "Age To Age":
