Put All Your Faith in Jesus
By David J. Stewart
Jesus Christ is the ONLY Way to Heaven!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever BELIEVETH IN HIM should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). “For ye are all the children of God by FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST” (Galatians 3:26). The Bible is clear concerning this matter—All people are to believe upon Jesus Christ. The main purpose for which Christ came into the world was to save sinners, “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be SAVED” (John 3:17). We are so blessed to have been made the object of God’s great love, “But God commendeth (demonstrated) his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). What a wonderful God!
It is joyful to know that God loves us. God is not out to get us; rather, He wants to prepare for us a place in Heaven, that where He is we may be also (John 14:1-3). God is not willing for any to perish, but that all would come to repentance (2nd Peter 3:9). God wants us to believe on His Son, Jesus Christ. To believe on the Son is to believe on the Father because Jesus and the Father are One. There is NO condemnation to those who are resting upon Jesus Christ for salvation... “There is therefore now NO CONDEMNATION to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” (Romans 8:1). The only safe place to be is in the everlasting arms of Christ.
Those who do not believe on Christ are already condemned... “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is CONDEMNED ALREADY, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:18). We MUST put our faith in Christ Jesus, there are NO other options. It’s Jesus or Hell. My friend, what will you do with Jesus? The Bible tells us why some people won’t come to Christ... “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were EVIL. For every one that doeth EVIL hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved” (John 3:19,20). We have no excuse if we miss Heaven. God has made salvation very simple and accessible to anyone. Eternal life is a free gift, paid for by Christ's blood sacrifice. Salvation is receiving, not giving. All we need to do is acknowledge our guilt of sin before God, and put all our faith in Jesus Christ, that His blood will wash away our sins forever.
Thieves and Robbers Try to Sneak into Heaven Without Jesus
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by THE DOOR into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber” (John 10:1). God says you are “a thief and a robber” if you are trying to enter Heaven through a side door or an underground tunnel. You’re a thief because you're illegally trying to make an entrance. Jesus paid for our sins because we CANNOT pay for our own sins. The ticket into Heaven has been paid for—all you have to do is accept the free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
Since you cannot pay for your own ticket into Heaven, you don’t have any other choice if you want to enter into Heaven’s pearly gates. It’s Jesus or Hell folks, I cannot stress this enough! John 10:9 says, “I AM THE DOOR: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” Jesus is the Door into Heaven. Listen to John 11:25,26... “Jesus said unto her, I AM THE RESURRECTION, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” Believest thou this? Do you believe the Words which Jesus spoke?
“Jesus saith unto him, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6). Mary CANNOT save you. The Pope CANNOT save you. The priest CANNOT forgive your sins. Only Jesus CAN save you and forgive your sins.
“I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep” (John 10:11). What a wondrous Savior! Being saved is so simple—all we must do is believe—“Just enough”—to call upon the name of the Lord... “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be SAVED” (Romans 10:13). The word “call” means to believe. It does NOT means that you have to audibly sound your voice to be saved. Salvation is of the heart, not the mouth. The mouth can do nothing to save you. You must believe in your heart that Christ raised from the dead and trust upon Him alone for salvation. Do you believe Jesus arose after being crucified and buried? Some folks think Jesus is still dead. Let me tell you my friend, Christ is alive and well and lives within the heart of every Christian Believer. Let me encourage you again to put all your faith in Jesus Christ if you have never done so. Make that decision now.
