Under Gods Command

1 Timothy 2:5-6 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men-the testimony given in its proper time. 

Though some people think there are many ways to God, in practice, each person must choose a single way.  We can stand on one side of a gorge and discuss the possibility of many bridges across the abyss, but if we are determined to cross, we will have to commit to one bridge.  Those who insist that there are many bridges to God usually fit one of the following categories.

  1. They have not personally committed to any “bridge.” They are surprised that their belief in multiple ways does not exempt them from having to choose one.
  2. Their belief in “many ways to God” hides their true belief that finding God doesn’t really matter at all.
  3. They are convinced that arguing for “many ways to God” will insure that they won’t be wrong.  If there is only one way, their generalized belief will presumably have included it.
  4. They have decided that believing in “many ways to God” requires less work than going to the trouble of actually considering the claims of various religious systems.

Lets Bring it Home:  The facts remain: We human beings are separated from God by sin and we need a Savior-a way across the abyss of sin and back to God.  Only one person in the universe is our Mediator and can stand between us and God and bring us together again-Jesus, who is both God and man.  Jesus sacrifice brought new life to all people.  Have you let him bridge the gap between you and God?
