I Am The Way

"Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me."  John 14:6 NIV

Jesus did not say that he is one of many paths to the truth and life.  Jesus said he is the way and the truth and the life.  None of us would go to heaven if it were not for Jesus' sacrifice on the cross.  That one loving sacrifice paid the price for our sins.  It is very simple.  If you want to spend eternity in heaven with God then ask Jesus into your heart and ask Him to forgive you for your sins and to be your Lord and Savior.  After you do that no one can take you away from Him.  You will be saved.  Think about it.  Forever is a very long time.     
"My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.  I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.  My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand.  I and the Father are one." John 10:27-29 NIV

"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.  And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.  Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.  Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.  But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:  While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."  Romans 5:1-8 (NIV)

Stuff Happens

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33
This past month has been difficult.  I had major surgery, my husband has had some problems with his inner ear and my golden, Amy Rose, had a big seizure.  The good news is my major surgery is over, my husband got medication that is working and my golden is doing well.  We live in a broken world that has sin in it.  Things will be difficult at times. It is just the way of the world.  The comfort you have is what Jesus said.  "We will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world."  We have the assurance that even in hard times Jesus is with us and helping us get through it.  You will get through whatever it is that is happening to you.  Just remember to put your trust and faith in the Jesus of the Bible.  Set aside a little time each day to read your Bible and talk to the Lord.  He speaks to you through the pages of the Bible.  Give Jesus your heart and life and He will give you eternal life.  Remember, Jesus overcame the world.
