Saying No To Jesus?

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

On occasion, someone will declare to me that they do not believe that placing one's faith in Christ is the only way to heaven.   Notice I said, declare not debate.  That's ok, Jesus gives everyone a choice to accept or reject Him.  But I have often wondered, "Why was it important for them to tell me that?"  

Some people want me to know that they think I'm a religious fanatic. 
Some people want me to know that they think I've got it wrong. 
Some people want me to know that they found another way to heaven and they don't need my help. 

Now the theological implications that Jesus got it wrong here is staggering.  Too much to dive into right now.  But either Jesus is a liar, and lunatic or He can save us from our sins.  Now obviously I agree with the latter. 

I have a real relationship with Christ that meets my needs every day. 
I have experienced His presence and power in my life - frequently. 
I have seen genuine miracles and wonders that only He can get the credit for. 
I can go on.  

So my point?  You can choose to believe or reject John 14:6.  But I know that it is true because I have experienced it for myself.  Have you?  

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, I want to experience you today.  AMEN
