How many ways are there to God? You might think, given the world we live, that there are multiple choices. It seems we have choices what to believe, what religion to follow, and even how we choose to follow the religion of our choice. We are so free, aren’t we?
Not so much. In fact, God seems to take away all of those options with the idea behind this verse. In fact, there is only one choice, the man Christ Jesus.
Why is this? In short, because there can be only one atoning sacrifice for sin, the only one qualified to atone for all sin for all time, and that is an infinite being, but also one who can shed blood and die. Only one being in the universe was capable of being infinite and eternal yet mortal. Jesus suffered all sin for all time because He is God. He paid for all sin because He shed His blood.
Since Jesus is the only one who could do this, then He is the only one who could save by His resurrection. This He is the only one we can trust in for eternal life. No one else comes close. No other god or prophet has done this. That’s why He’s the only One.
God bless you today.
