Good Morning. Today is the last day of 2010. Take time to reflect over the good, bad, great and worst parts of the year. You should always be able to find the blessing out of every situation; no matter how big or small. Ask yourself, “Did I do all I could do spiritually to grow closer to God? Did I make a consistent effort to change my bad habits?” Don’t spend too much time on what went wrong in 2010, but spend more time reflecting on how good God has been to you through this year. Then spend time reflecting on what you can do differently on a spiritual level to grow closer to God. The closer you grow to Christ the closer you come to reaching the desires of your heart.
TFTD: He is the way
John 14:5-6 (New King James Version)
5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
As Christians we have heard the saying, “Jesus will make a way out of no way”. I want to remind believers and inform non-believers that Jesus IS THE WAY out of no way. When you are living in the world filled with sin and haven’t accepted the Lord as your savior, then you are living a life heading no where. You are living a meaningless life headed for destruction. Without Christ you are just buying time until your eternal death in hell. However, with Christ He can change your course and lead you the right way. He is the way out of no way.
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. NO ONE and that means NO one can come to the Father expect through Christ. We must accept Christ as our personal savior in order to go to heaven. You can’t get into heaven and the promise of eternal life by doing good deeds. You have to accept the Lord.
John 3:16 says,
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
God loved you so much that He sent His Son to die for you. Jesus carried all of your sins to the cross with Him, died, went to hell, snatched the keys from Satan, rose on the third day and ascended to heaven to sit on the right hand of the Father. He did all of this so that you would have everlasting life. He is the way. You no longer have to fear a spiritual death when you accept Christ.
You made it through 2010 physically living, but spiritual heading no where. Without Christ you are lost. Try Christ, He is the way.
Romans 10:9 says,
9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
That’s all it takes to be saved. If there is a little part of you that believes this, that is all you need to start your life in a new direction. You have been wandering around aimlessly without Christ. Once you accept Christ it’s like getting a spiritual GPS that will lead you in the right direction.
He is the way, the truth, and the life. You cannot and will not get to heaven without Christ. Will you try Christ today?
I pray you have a blessed New Year’s. If Jesus came back tonight, where will He find you?
