Ambigiuous...I think not!

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. Matt 7: 13

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14: 6

Well I hope you enjoyed celebrating the glorious resurrection of Christ Jesus. He HAS
risen and what that means for mankind, itself, is impossible to underestimate....unless...

There are folks out there who simply like choices. They want there to be an A,B and C door
that allows them a say in what is to happen. After all, it's their life, right? Well, I'm not so
sure, but that was handled in a previous blog. People want to be the captain of the ship, and
this may, unfortunately, include their perception of how they may find God. 

The Bible, Jesus, himself and God through His word have eliminated doors of choice. They
have made it clear that good people of other religions, of other beliefs or simply people who
are out there searching for their soul's destination really have but one choice when it
comes to the issue of their soul reaching God. Jesus.

That may seem a bit haughty, a bit limited, a bit stand-offish....okay. The choice of
following Jesus becomes more commonly known with every day. The gospel message
is available to people, everywhere, in some fashion. Whether one sides with the issues
of election and predestination or whether one sees God as reaching out to His whole
creation, the end route remains the same...acceptance, belief and trust in Jesus Christ,
the spotless lamb of God, the redeemer and our Savior. 

His arms are outstretched. There's plenty of room at the foot of the cross. He is strong enough and glorious enough to handle all concerns, fears, problems.. even sins. He
desires to be Savior, Lord and King.

What better time to find Him from your knees. He isn't hidden behind any door. He
is our accessible, grace-filled sovereign Lord. Speak to Him, today.

Praise God!
