"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 KJV)
The coming of Jesus Christ is close, very close; therefore, prepare your life. Prepare to meet the Lord. Don’t be taken by surprise. No matter what you do, whether you’re a politician, a soldier, a policeman, a Judge, a lawyer, a student; it doesn’t matter; everyone can believe in Jesus and everyone should. There’s no other way for men to receive salvation, learn of, and understand the righteousness of God, outside of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
As read in our theme verse, Jesus said, “...I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” He didn’t talk about religion in that scripture. It’s about how you can get to God; Jesus is the way—the only way. Also, He’s the life; which means anyone living outside Jesus is living a mere biological life; not a real life.
The apostles understood this; therefore, when they went preaching, they said, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). That’s the final verdict. Wherever you are in this great world today, understand that there’s no salvation in any other. If you’re reading this and you haven’t made Jesus the Lord of your life, I call upon you now to believe in Jesus Christ with all your heart. Turn to the Prayer of Salvation at the back of this devotional and pray that prayer, and receive salvation for your soul.
For you that are born again, this is the time to preach the Gospel like never before. Preach it everywhere and to everyone in your world: your street, place of work or business, your city, your nation, and the nations of the world. The Lord is counting on you. He said in Mark 16:15, “…Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Don’t hold back; preach it everywhere.
"Father, thank you for calling me into the ministry of reconciliation. Thank you for the supernatural enablement to transform the lives of those around me and beyond with the Gospel. And now, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, I pray for everyone who’ll receive salvation today; let the Name of the Lord Jesus be named upon them from this day. Satan has no claims over them anymore. I bless them with your Word, with your grace, with your love, and with the Holy Ghost. Amen."
