God Made A Way


“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3: 16 – 17) Jesus also said, “I am the way the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father, except through Me.” (John 14: 6)


Since Adam initially sinned in the garden of Eden, man has been separated from God. A pure and holy Creator doesn’t fellowship with sinful people. And yet, in His wisdom, the Lord created a way through this barrier of sin and death by sending His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross. This eternal sacrifice has the power to completely and permanently reconcile human beings to God. When we place our faith in Jesus Christ and exercise obedience to His teachings, we are reconnected with our Heavenly Father. Only our faith in Jesus Christ is enduring and acceptable.

For centuries the Pacific and Atlantic oceans remained separated by the American continents. Ships carrying cargo had no choice but to sail around them in order to reach the other side. Many individuals had long dreamed of creating a waterway through a narrow section of land in the nation of Panama. Considering the amount of work needed to accomplish the task, most believed it couldn’t be done. And yet President Theodore Roosevelt thought otherwise. As president, he ordered the digging to begin in 1904, and despite many setbacks, the canal was completed in 1914. The mighty barrier had been breached. The Atlantic and Pacific Oceans had finally been united.

Like the Panama Canal, God has dug a pathway through the barrier of sin and death that separates Him from mankind. Those who place their faith in Jesus Christ can be reconciled with their Heavenly Father; permitting them to once again be united. The praise and honor for this amazing work belongs to God alone. We read “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” (Ephesians 2: 8 – 9)

“Lord Heavenly Father, we pray for your unending grace, and we thank You for sending Your son to die for our sins, that we might be reconciled to You forever. May we continue to spread this good news to others; that they too might be saved and reunited with You. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit and give us the strength and courage to continue faithfully preaching the Gospel. We love You Father, we praise You, and we thank You, and we ask and pray all of these things, according to Your will, in Jesus Christ’s name. Amen.” God bless all of you!
