There’s Only One Way
“There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.”
Today, I want to talk to you about what God tells us about Sin, and the attitude that so many people in today’s society have gravitated to. When Adam and Eve brought sin into God’s perfect world, mankind became separated from God, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23. The only way to restore this brokenness is through Jesus. “but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23. We are all sinners and there is no other way to be saved or be born again, than to ask Jesus into our hearts, ask Him to forgive us of our sins and promise to obey Him and keep His commandments. Today, I see people, and even churches, trying to come up with ways to bridge this separation back to God. They are hesitant to take the only solution that Jesus offers, but rather are trying to make up ways to bridge this gap to meet their own individual needs. Simply being a good person, or doing good deeds, tithing and helping others, going to church on Sunday, and reading our Bibles and praying are not going to get us to Heaven. There is only one way to bring us back to God, and this is to ask Jesus into our hearts. There is no other way, but people are still looking for their own answers, but they are not going to find one. Our modern American culture is becoming more “spiritual” while becoming less “Christian”. We sense the need to deal with the problem caused by sin, but we’re hesitant to take the one and only solution that Jesus offers. It is almost like people are waiting in line at a huge smorgasbord trying to find their own solution, but there isn’t one. Salvation is the only answer. If you do not know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, simply bow your head right now and ask Jesus to come into your heart, and forgive you of all your sins, and promise to turn from sin and obey His commandments. This simple act will secure your home in Heaven. Do it today as you are not promised tomorrow and then it will be too late.
