Resting In the Promise of Eternal Life In Christ
“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
I’m told that in a cemetery up in Indiana, there’s an epitaph on a tombstone which says,
Pause stranger, you who pass me by,
As you are now, so one day was I.
As I am now, so will you be.
So prepare for death and follow me.
So one day, a visitor walked by there and scratched on the bottom of that little epitaph:
To follow you I am not content,
Until I know which way you went!
There’s only one way to heaven. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). Jesus is the one and only one to follow… there’s no one else! He’s the only one who can take you to the glory of heaven on the day you pass from this life to the next.
With all the ideas in the world today about this or that way to get to heaven, isn’t it wonderful to have a Savior who didn't come to show the way? Rather, He came to be the way. And it’s by a faith relationship with Him that you can know for sure you’ll be with Him forever!
With all the competing ideas in the world today about heaven, take comfort that Jesus is the only way to eternal life!
