How Can A Person Be A Way

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me,” (John 14:6). The Lord Jesus Christ said it.

“But,” you say, “how can a person be a way to Heaven?”

Let’s illustrate. You are trapped in your room on the fifth floor of a burning hotel. Billows of suffocating black smoke pouring through the hall cut off every means of escape. Terror grips you. Horrible death stares you in the face. Thoughts of loved ones, home, and eternity race through your mind. You scream for help.

You slam the door shut. But the smoke creeps through the cracks into your room, grimly reminding you of sheets of flame licking hungrily at the building.

Sirens shriek. People are yelling and choking and dying in wild fright. The blood seems to freeze in your veins. Paralyzed with fear and in dreadful despair, you are about to give up all hope when suddenly a fireman, who has climbed a ladder to your room, sticks his head through the window and shouts, “I’ve come to save you!”

You look down to the street below, then draw back in fear. “You mean you are going to take me down that ladder?”


“Surely there must be some other way. What about the stairs?” “No.”

“The elevator?” “No.”

“Well, the fire escape—.” “Now listen, this is no time to argue. There is no other way. I AM THE WAY! Trust me. I’ll soon have you down in safety.”

The fireman is your way out. He is your only hope. You must let him save you, or perish in the flames.
So you decide to do as he says. You yield yourself to him. You trust him. Down the ladder you go. He knows how to do this job. He is an expert. Before you know it, you are down on the sidewalk. SAVED! Joy and peace overwhelm you. The fireman has become your salvation, your peace, your joy, your way out of death into life.

You say, “I know I am a lost, guilty sinner, for the Bible says, ‘ALL have sinned, and come short of the glory of God,’ (Romans 3:23). How can I be saved from the wrath to come and be sure of a home in Heaven?”
