We are living in uncertain times of constant changes. Only God’s will or God’s way remains the same. “For I am the Lord, I change not” (Mal. 3: 6). “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb 13:8). “The foundation of God stands sure” (2 Tim. 2:19).
Jesus is the Sure Way
“I am the way, the truth, and the life”, says Jesus (Jn. 14:6). You may travel other ways, but if you get to heaven you’ll have to travel this “one” way. This is a “narrow way with a “strait” gate (Matt. 7: 14). False teachers and false religions speak evil of this way of truth (2 Pet. 2:1-2). Some are not satisfied with this way and forsake it. Of them it is said, “Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray” (2 Pet. 2:15 ). This sure way leads to the city of God. “Blessed are they that do his commandments that they may have a right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city” (Rev. 22:14).
The Sure Entrance
“Except you believe that I am, you shall die in your sins” (Jn 8:24). “With the heart man believes unto rightmost and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Rom 10:10) “Unless you repent you will all likewise perish” (Lk 13:3). “Now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord” (Acts 22:16). There is no other way to become a member of the Lord’s church than this way (Acts 2:42 f; 1 Cor 12:13,27).
The Sure Church
Jesus said, “Upon this rock I will build my church”, says Jesus (Matt. 16:18). The church Jesus built is the only right church. This church is the wife of Christ (Rom. 7:4). Christ only has one wife. “I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife” (Rev. 21:9). This church was paid for with the blood of Christ (Acts 20:28) Christ is the head of this church (Col. 1:18). Christ is the foundation of this church (1 Cor. 3:11). Christ is the Savior of this church. “For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church, and He is the Savior of the body” (Eph. 5:23). You can glorify God in this church (Eph. 3:21). This church has one name, that is, (the body) the church of Christ (Eph 1:22,23 f; 1 Cor 12:27; Rom 16:16).
The Sure Worship
“You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.” “Worship God!” (Rev. 22:9). This worship must be in SPIRIT and in TRUTH (Jn. 4: 24). The Lord’s day worship in this church consists of “breaking bread” (Acts 20:7); giving as prospered on the first day of the week (1 Cor. 16:1-2); singing (without instrumental music) in the midst of the church (Heb. 2:12); and praying (Acts 2:41 f; Eph 5:19). Preaching in and out of season (2 Tim 4:2-5). Studying God’s Word (2 Tim 2:15).
The Sure Destiny
Jesus said, “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into life eternal” (Mt. 25:46). Paul wrote, “In hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began” (Tit 1:2). John concluded, “Be faithful unto death and I will give you a crown of life” (Rev 2:10)
Conclusion: Are you sure of your salvation? The only sure way is God’s Way!
