John 8:44 KJV
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
From Scripture, we have learned, God's word, the Bible, is Truth, given to men by inspiration of God, profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness. But what we may not know is, God's word, the Truth is found in the person of Jesus Christ, personified, giving men access to the way, the truth, and the life. In other words, God, personified in Jesus Christ gave men access to eternal salvation and to the spiritual things of God (Truth) which leads to eternal life, despite man's sinful nature.
Jesus Christ is the key to eternal salvation, spiritual things, and life. Without Christ, Heaven is unobtainable by any other way, method, or practice. Men cannot get to heaven by being good, attending a particular church, or some other earthly means. Scripture clearly states; "no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." "Me" is referring to Jesus Christ, and because God, the Father, is in heaven, no man can get to the Father, without trusting and going through Jesus Christ. Why? Because
Jesus went to the cross, shed His blood, and paid man's sin debt. A debt man owed, when Adam and Eve disobeyed God's commandment not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil; a debt passed on to all future generations. Thus, the shedding of blood is necessary for the remission (forgiveness) of sins. But not just any blood, but the blood of someone who is without sin; perfect and unblemished. Jesus Christ is the only person able to meet God's standards of perfection and righteousness, satisfying the requirements of the law. Therefore, a man must accept Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior to enter the kingdom of heaven.
From this brief lesson, we have learned, Jesus is the way to eternal salvation, the truth, concerning spiritual things, and eternal life in heaven. No one comes to the Father, accept through Jesus Christ. Have you accepted Jesus as your Savior? Perhaps today is that day. Trust Jesus and have eternal life.
