Today is Thursday, 24 of March in the year 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of
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)
If you read the above passage in its whole context i.e. from verse 1, you will discover that Jesus made this statement immediately after predicting His death; and from there you will understand that what He really meant was that He is the only person that all the righteous people must pass through in death to the Father Who will reward them with eternal life.
And in (Acts 4:12) we see that salvation can be found in no one else except our Lord Jesus Christ.
This scripture shows us in (Colossians 1:19-20) that Jesus is the only One who was able to make atonement for the sins of mankind through His shameful death on the cross of Calvary, thereby reconciling mankind back to that grace they missed because of the original sin – eating of the forbidden fruit.
And John and Mathew finally concludes this point by showing us in (1 John 2:1-2) and (Mathew 10:32-33) that Jesus did not die for the Christians alone but for people from other religions, races and tribes.
What confessing Jesus really means.
Confessing Jesus as many Christians think is not letting people openly know they are Christians, or becoming preachers; rather it is putting the words and teachings of the Master into practice because it is through sinful acts that we deny Him as it is written (Titus 1:16)
For this reason the scripture says in (Romans 2:21-23) that those who teach others should lso teach themselves.
If you preach that people should not steal, you also must not steal.
If you preach that people should not commit adultery, you also must not commit adultery etc.
