Acts 4:12 12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”(NIV)

 Many people think they can earn their way to heaven by being good.  Others think they go to heaven through some form of religion.  Jesus said there is only one door which leads to heaven.  He said He is the door.  There is no other way.  Many think because God is love He wouldn’t exclude anyone who tries to be good from entering heaven.  Jesus said man’s goodness is like filthy rags.  There is only One Who always existed with God the Father.  He is Jesus.  Jesus is the Word through which the Father created all things.  The Father sent the Word to earth through a virgin woman to demonstrate His love for man and to take away the sins of man (the desire to worship himself and other things other than God) on Himself so man could be covered with the righteousness of the Word, Jesus, and dwell in the presence of God for all eternity.  It is not a lack of love that there is only one way to heaven.  It is pure, perfect and divine love.  It is a love beyond the comprehension of sinful man.  As we open ourselves to such a great love we are moved to bring others to that love.  Let us go forth and spread that love to others.
