No Plan B

By Andrea Merrell

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one can come to the Father except through me.
John 15:6 NLT

The woman was adamant. “I don’t need to go to church or read outdated words from some old Bible. I’ll go to heaven. I’m a good person.”

The conversation bounced back and forth between the woman and her friend like a ping pong ball, but she would not budge. She was convinced God had a plan B for people like her. She was determined to find her own way.

The Bible clearly says Jesus is “the way, the truth, and the life.”  It also says that no one gets to the Father any other way but through Him.

One writer says there is one—and only one—way for us to be saved. And that is the way of the cross. Jesus suffered, bled, and died … for you … and for me. He endured great agony and humiliation to become the ultimate sacrifice.

As the song says, “the cross has the final word.”

In God’s kingdom, there is no plan B.
