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

    This fact that Jesus is the only way to heaven isn’t popular in our age of the “it doesn’t matter what you believe as long as you’re sincere” and “all faiths lead to the same destination” way of thinking. People argue that having just one way is too narrow and limiting. “How can anyone claim to be the only way to God?” they assert.

    In reality, Jesus’ way is wide enough for all who believe. Instead of arguing and worrying about how limited it sounds, people should be grateful that there actually is one way to God and eternal life.
    When coming to a precipice and wishing to get to the other side of the great divide, we don’t pout and demand that a bridge be in place on the exact spot where we stand. Instead, we travel to the bridge, the only bridge, a few miles away, grateful that a way across has been provided.

    Jesus is the way — follow him. Jesus is truth — believe him. Jesus is life — live in him. Regardless of the claims of cults, pop religion, or wishful thinking, no other bridge to the Father and his house exists.
    Thank God he has provided the Way!

    Jesus, you are . . .
