THE WAY TO SALVATION,
BLESSING AND PROSPERITY!
In this sermon outline we look at the words of Jesus of He being the
only way to salvation and blessing and in John's writings from his third
epistle. It helps us to reach out by faith to receive His teachings and
builds our faith.
- John 14:1-7 (KJV) 1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God,
believe also in me. 2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were
not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if
I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you
unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4 And whither I go
ye know, and the way ye know. 5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not
whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 6 Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me. 7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also:
and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
- 3 John 1:2-4 (KJV) 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest
prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 For I rejoiced
greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in
thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. 4 I have no greater joy than to
hear that my children walk in truth.
I. The Way is the Lord Jesus Christ.
A. Jesus is the only way. Acts 4:12 (KJV) Neither is there salvation in
any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men,
whereby we must be saved.
B. There is no other way to heaven, all other paths no matter how
wonderful they look and sound will not lead you to heaven and blessings.
C. Some other ways or paths declare their good works or being a good
person with get them to heaven. Not what the Bible tells us in Ephesians
2:8-9 (KJV) 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of
yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should
II. Jesus is not only the Way but He is the Truth.
A. Jesus is not just a 'truth' He is the Truth.
1. Pilate asked John 18:38 (KJV) Pilate saith unto him, What
is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the
Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
2. When you find Him, you will find Truth and there is not
fault in Him.
3. I have met thousands of believers in over 100 countries
and never had one say they were sorry they became a Christian.
However, I have met a lot of 'sorry' looking or acting Christians.
B. The devil uses partial truth to deceive people about the real Truth,
the Lord Jesus. Story of the devil with partial truth. Once the Devil
was walking along with one of his cohorts. They saw a man ahead of them
pick up something shiny. "What did he find?" asked the cohort. "A piece
of the truth," the Devil replied. "Doesn't it bother you that he found a
piece of the truth?" asked the cohort. No," said the Devil, "I will see
to it that he makes a religion out of it."
C. Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick
themselves up and hurry off as if nothing happened. Winston Churchill.
III. He is also the LIFE! Not a life but The Life.
A. Not only is He the Life but the giver of life. John 14:19 (KJV) Yet a
little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I
live, ye shall live also.
B. He came to give us life. John 10:10 (KJV) The thief cometh not, but
for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might
have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
C. Receiving Him gives us life. 1 John 5:12 (KJV) He that hath the Son
hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
IV. Finding the Way is also finding the Will of God.
A. The Way brings blessing according to 3 John 1:2 (KJV) Beloved, I wish
above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy
1. He wants to prosper us.
2. Provide health for us.
3. With the condition that our soul or spirit prospers.
4. This happens when we walk in the Way. Walking in Christ
and in His Word. 3 John verse 3 'even as thou walkest in the truth'.
In conclusion: God wants to give us more than we can ask or
think, Ephesians 3:20 (KJV) Now unto him that is able to do exceeding
abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that
worketh in us, However, it is what we do with He who is the WAY, TRUTH
AND THE LIFE. Is He Lord and Master of your life. If not then open your
heart and life to Him today. Call on Him. Romans 10:13 (KJV) For
whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
God bless you and yours!
