This is a brief overview of 1 Corinthians as the apostle Paul taught believers and…
It is my desire to persuade and convince you of only one God, who you can only come to know through Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ said, in the book of John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” Jesus made it absolutely clear He alone, is the only way to the God the Father, there is no other way to God accept through Jesus Christ. The Word of God is very clear that there is only one way to come to God the Father and to know God personally. The Scriptures reveal there is one way and that is through Jesus Christ His Son. The apostle John in 1 John 2:23 wrote, “Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.” The Word of God is explicitly clear that whoever does not accept Jesus Christ as Lord of his or her life does not have God the Father. Those who accept Jesus Christ as Lord of his or her life will have God the Father also. In 2 Cor. 5:18-19, the apostle Paul says, “Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.”
Peter spoke to the rulers and elders of the people concerning Jesus Christ of Nazareth in the Book of Acts 4:12 saying, “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” The Scriptures make it clear that there is no salvation in any other name. There is no other way to come to know God the Father and there is no other name by which we must be saved, but the name of Jesus Christ. My desire for you is to realize your sinful condition before God and repent of your sins, which means to turn away from all sin. You must accept by faith the sacrificial death of Christ on the cross, the shedding of His blood for your sins in order to receive His forgiveness and eternal salvation. There are many false religions in the world today that lead people astray, the Scriptures clearly state that Jesus Christ is the only way to God the Father. Jesus also said in the book of John 6:44-45, “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me.” The Word of God makes it clear that all who have truly heard and learned from God the Father will come to Jesus Christ for salvation. We must come to Him in faith in order to receive salvation because He is the only way to receive salvation and there is no other name given by which we must be saved.
We must respond to the call of the Lord Jesus Christ by coming to Him in faith and accepting His sacrifice for our sins to receive eternal salvation. We must come to God according to the way He purposed before time began which is through His Son Jesus Christ the only way to know God (2 Tim.1:8-10; 1 John 2:20-23). We must learn to worship the Lord the way He desires us to worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:23-24). We must learn to surrender our self centred ways and learn to yield ourselves as His disciples in obedience to His will and follow Him as He directs us to follow Him. We must give up our self willed ways of thinking that we know best, or how we ought, or should worship Him apart from the Word of God. Many do not understand what, who, or why they worship the way they do. According to the Word of God in the book of John 4:4 Jesus says, “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” The truth the word of God is speaking of is not according to what we think may be the truth, but is what the Word of God reveals to be truth.
