25 Names of Jesus: {Day 22} The Way, The Truth & The Life

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

It is a tough truth to hear in this "pc" world we live in, where we are supposed to tolerate every ridiculous belief under the sun because every person has the right to their own opinion. And yet the most ridiculous part is that the very people preaching the "pc" philosophy are the very ones who have absolutely NO tolerance for Christians, Christmas, Christ and/or His message!

But the bottom line is that there is NO other way to have a personal relationship with God and/or eternal life in Heaven except through faith in Jesus Christ. Period.

I love all people. I believe in equal rights. But the Bible tells me there is only one way. It is not personal. It is not discriminatory. It is the truth.

And the best is not only for certain people, but to ALL who believe. How could it be any more inclusive?

"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10:9)

I hope you are having fun hanging your 25 Names of Jesus advent ornaments and discussing His names with your family! Go here to read the other posts in this series and to download the free printable ornaments if you want to follow along as we countdown to Christmas!
