Coming To God Only By Christ
Every man by nature is attempting to climb up to heaven on the broken ladder of works or trying to cross over the flood of God’s wrath on the fallen bridge of the law. But as sure as God is holy, all these attempts will fail; for “by the works of the law, no flesh shall be justified in his sight.”
God has established a bridge between heaven and earth by the obedience, death, and intercession of his eternal Son and every other way to heaven but this is blocked by the justice and holiness of God.
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
