No One Comes To the Father, But Through Me: John 14:6

“no one comes to the Father if not through me.”               Jesus begins and ends this passage by focusing on himself.  Friends, salvation can be found in no other person or path.  It cannot be found in philosophy, in science, in achievements, in wealth, in family, in humanism, in Buddha, in Mohammed, or in… Read More

No One Comes to the Father: John 14:6

“no one comes to the father”               Do you see how the Trinity is at work in redemptive history?  We offended God by our sin and our rejection of his law.  Yet, rather than leave us to our deserved fate, God chose to work in our lives to redeem a people for himself.  God… Read More
