There is a neat story I have been studying now for a number of weeks
Summary: You don’t know you misplaced something until you need it.
The Bible states very strongly that we are “new creatures in Christ”
When God thinks of you – – And He does so continuously
He is excited about who you are
When we look at ourselves – think about our life – we see:
Our current situation
Our relationships or lack of them with others
The hurts and wounds that keep us anchored to the past
Chains on the brains
Our wants and needs Read more
Is Jesus truly the only way? The Bible states, “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)
Many people believe that God exists. They just don’t believe that biblical Christianity is true or that Jesus of Nazareth is God born as a man – the human face of God and the Lord and Saviour of humankind.
Certainly, Christianity is by no means the only faith that lays claim to having “the truth.” There is also Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, and Islam (the Muslim faith) as well as many other religions that claim to hold “the truth.”
All serve a different deity, all have their own sacred writings, and all teach a different path of salvation.
So, how can we be sure that we are right and that we have THE truth? How can we know for certain that Jesus is THE Way – the ONLY Way to enter into Heaven when we die and leave this life behind? How do we defend this truth when challenged by those who do not believe?
In this teaching, Ralph will be leading us through an examination and discussion of this bold claim of Jesus being the only way. We will look at the proof that Jesus truly is “the Way, the Truth, and the Life” and that there is absolutely no other way to enter Heaven or experience eternal life.
The early apostles were solidly committed to Jesus and gave their lives for Him
They were in awe of Him understanding that He is God
They saw His splendour
They had experienced His majesty
They had encountered His glory – “the glory of the only begotten of the Father” (John 1:14)
They gave up everything to follow Him and eventually gave their lives for Him – dying for their faith in Him
In everything they did they exalted Him – put Him first – lifted Him up for all to see Read more
When children are born parents have already chosen their name or names
1 John 1:1-4 “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life— the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us— that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.”
