Wide Enough for All Who Believe

Jesus told him, I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one can come to the Father except through me."
(John 14:6 NLT)

When the disciples asked how they would get to the Father and his "house," Jesus answered that He was the only way.

  • The fact that Jesus is the only way to heaven isn't popular in our age of "it doesn't matter what you believe as long as you're sincere" and "all faiths lead to the same destination" ways of thinking.

People argue that having just one way is too narrow and limiting.
In reality, it is wide enough for all who believe.
Instead of arguing and worrying about how limited it sounds,
they should be grateful that there actually is one way to God.

When standing at a precipice and wishing to get to the other side of the great divide,
we don't pout and demand that a bridge be where we are.

Instead, we travel to the bridge,
the only bridge, a few miles away,
grateful that there is a way across

Jesus is the way -- follow him.
Jesus is truth -- believe him.
Jesus is life -- live in him.

There is no other bridge to the Father and his house
