Let me say this right off the bat; There is only one way to God…it’s through our Lord Jesus Christ. That is one of the least popular aspects of Christianity in our pluralistic society, for it’s not “politically correct” to make dogmatic statements. But Jesus said: “I am the way…no one
goes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6).
That’s pretty dogmatic and Peter added: “Nor is there any salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
Although there is only one way to the Father, there are many leading to Jesus Christ. We don’t all approach Him under the same circumstances. Consider the characters in the Gospels: Peter found Jesus by the seashore. Nicodemus came under the cloak of darkness, the demonic was naked and frantic when Jesus saved him; Matthew was in his tax both and Zacchaeus was up in a sycamore tree.
Think of the various ways in which people came to Christ in the book of Acts. Three thousand were saved through peter’s sermon on the Day of Pentecost. Saul of Tarsus was saved after being blinded and knocked to the ground. The Ethiopian in Acts 8 was saved when Philip showed up in the desert just as he was puzzling over the book of Isaiah 53. The Philippian jailer was saved during an earthquake, and a ship filled with terrified passengers became an evangelistic
arena for the apostle Paul in Acts 27.
Who or what led you to Christ? We all came to Him through one message (the
Gospel), by one mean (by grace through faith), but God draws us all differently.
In 2 Samuel 14:14, we read: “God…devises ways so that a banish person may not remain
estranged to Him.”
God devises ways to bring you in a position where you will have a chance to meet
with Jesus. Yes! Sometime in very unusual manner…but God is God and He knows
best, He knows how to reach each one of us in His own way…so that you may
“See, I set before you today
life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the
Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments, decrees and
laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in
the land you are entering to possess.” (Deuteronomy 30:15-16)
