“Jesus, the ONLY WAY!”
"Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.”
(John 14:6 NKJV)
1. BELIEVE IN JESUS BECAUSE HE IS THE WAY
"Salvation comes no other way; no other name has been or will be given to us by which we can be saved, only this one.”
(Acts 4:12, The Message)
“But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,” (John 1:12,ESV)
“Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.” (John 3:18, ESV)
2. BELIEVE IN JESUS BECAUSE HE IS THE TRUTH
"God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind.” (Numbers 23:19, NLT)
“…but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” (John1:17, NKJV)
“The entirety of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.” (Psalm 119:160, NKJV)
“…because it is impossible for God to lie.” (Hebrews 6:18, NLT)
3. BELIEVE IN JESUS BECAUSE HE IS THE LIFE
”These are written down so you will believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and in the act of believing, have real and eternal life in the way he personally revealed it.” (John 20:31, The Message)
“I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.” (John 5:24, NLT)
