“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 (NIV)
Yes, Christ is the only way to the Father! Yes, Christianity is NOT equal to other ‘religions!’ There is only one road to heaven, and it is not a highway! Jesus said it was a narrow path and few find it (Matthew 7:14). That’s why we cannot be silent, we cannot live as secret followers of Christ. The world needs to know hell is real, and Jesus through His death provided the only way! Isaiah prophesied God saying “apart from Me there is no savior” (Isaiah 43:11)! Jesus is the only way to heaven (John 14:6)!
Today, what so many dismiss and reject as Christianity is not Christianity at all! What they are rejecting is a watered-down, weak representation of it. They have not experienced the power and presence of God. It is not being modeled or preached about from most pulpits across our nation!
Ask God to awaken a new fervency for the lost. Ask God for a new boldness, for eyes to see new opportunities and for you to be able to display with your life and words what true Christianity looks like. Ask God to dismantle everything in your church that keeps people from seeing a true example of Christ. May salvation increase and the kingdom advance in your church and other churches across our city (and nation) who want to look more like Jesus and less like the world!
