God’s Way For Our Salvation

 

Is there something deep inside of you that never seems to be satisfied? If so, Jesus is the way! Jesus said, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty” (John 6:35)

 

Are you confused? Can you never seem to find a path or purpose in life? If so, Jesus is the way! Jesus proclaimed, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”   (John 8:12)

 

Do you ever feel like you are locked out of life? Have you tried so many doors, only to find that what is behind them is empty and meaningless? If so, Jesus is the way! Jesus declared, “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture.”   (John 10:9)

 

Do other people always let you down? Does it seem like everyone is trying to take advantage of you? If so, Jesus is the way! Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me.”   (John 10:11, 14)

 

Do you wonder what happens after this life? Are you tired of living your life for things that only rot or rust? If so, Jesus is the way! Jesus declared, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” (John 11:25-26) Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

 

The emptiness that you feel is a spiritual hunger, and can only be filled by Jesus. Jesus is the only one who can lift the darkness. Jesus is the way of salvation! The reason you feel hungry, lost in darkness, and cannot find meaning in life, is that you are separated from God. The Bible tells us that we have all sinned, and are therefore separated from God (Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 3:23) The void you feel in your heart is God missing from your life. We were created to have a relationship with God. Because of our sin, we are separated from that relationship with God. Even worse, our sin will cause us to be separated from God for all eternity, in this life and the next.   (Romans 6:23; John 3:36)

 

How can this problem be solved? Jesus is the way! Jesus took our sin upon Himself   (2 Corinthians 5:21) Jesus died in our place   (Romans 5:8) taking the punishment that we deserve. Three days later, Jesus rose from the dead, proving His victory over sin and death (Romans 6:4-5). Why did He do it? Jesus answered that question Himself: "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”   (John 15:13) Jesus died so that we could live. If we place our faith in Jesus, trusting His death as the payment for our sins, all of our sins are forgiven and washed away. We will then have our spiritual hunger satisfied. We will have access to a fulfilling life. We will know our true best friend and good shepherd. We will know that we will have life after we die—a resurrected life in heaven for eternity with Jesus!

 

“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.” (John 3:16)
