Worldly Means

“Thomas saith unto Him, Lord, we know not whither thou go; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life: no man comes unto the Father, but by Me.” John 14:5-6.

Like many today, Thomas tried to know the Lord intellectually and not spiritually. Psychology and motivational gospels teach worldly means as a way to achieve godly results while using the Lord Jesus Christ as merely an example of The Way, The Truth and The Life and not THE Way, THE Truth and THE Life. In other words, they do not teach Jesus and His work as The Way but use the Lord as an example while directing one’s faith toward their self will and self efforts to be like Jesus. This deceit is rampant in the modern church.

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:” Ephesians 2:8. We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and His work on the Cross. We are sanctificed by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and His work on the Cross. We are delivered by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and His work on the Cross.

This faith in Jesus Christ and Him crucified is the faith that we must fight for, never to be deceived and never to be led astray.

“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.” 1 Timothy 6:12.
