The Only Way To Salvation

The Only Way

 John 14:6

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

 

This is surely one of the best-known, best-loved, most important, clearest, yet most profound verses in the Bible.

There is no other way to come to God except through Christ,

No other truth than that which is founded and centered on Christ

No other eternal life except the life of Christ imparted to the believer–through faith in Christ.

 

All who teach otherwise are “thieves and robbers” of the soul,

John 10:8

All who came before me[a] were thieves and robbers. But the true sheep did not listen to them.

for Jesus said,

John 10:9

“Yes, I am the gate (door). Those who come in through me will be saved.They will come and go freely and will find good pastures.

There is no other door to heaven and no other Shepherd of the sheep.

 

Jesus is the only “light of the world”to illumine a world otherwise blackened by sin

John 8:12

Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”

2 Corinthians 4:6

For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.

He is “that bread of life

John 6:48

Yes, I am the bread of life!

John 6:51

I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; and this bread, which I will offer so the world may live, is my flesh.

there is no other such lifesustaining eternal food for the hungry soul

 

Likewise, is He the “living water.” No other water satisfies.

 

 

John 7:37-38

On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’”

 

He is also the one “true vine” in whom we must abide for fruit-producing life. John 15:1

“I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. 

John 15:5

“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing

 

The Scriptures have made it abundantly plain that:

Acts 4:12

There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”

 

There is no other way;

The Lord Jesus Christ is the alsufficient way,

He is the perfect way, to God.

He does not only show the way, He is the way,

All who want to come to God, must come through Him.
