Wisdom Wednesday: Green Light

Found on studentdevos.com

Traffic lights are a pretty fantastic invention. Without traffic lights, driving would be nuts! Vehicles wouldn’t know when to stop and when to go. Traffic lights help keep traffic flowing smoothly and help reduce accidents on the road. They are able to show us when and where to go and are really very useful!

Jesus is a lot like a Screen shot 2014-10-10 at 11.48.28 PMtraffic light. Not that He’s made out of metal and wires, but in the way he shows us the way to go to heaven. A traffic light guides traffic by its colored lights. For example, when the traffic light is green, drivers know its time to go. The yellow light tells drivers to go forward with caution. And if the light is red drivers know they should stop. That’s a lot like Jesus because in the Bible, He shows us that He is the way to heaven.

Jesus shows us clearly in that verse that the only way to get to God is through Him. Some people believe that Jesus is one of many ways to God. However, that’s not what the Bible teaches. The Bible clearly states that Jesus is the only way to God. Just like each color of the traffic light means one thing, the one way to God is through Jesus.

Jesus is the only one who can save people. His name is the only power in the world that has been given to save anyone. We must be saved through him!”  – Acts 4:12 (ERV)

When it comes to getting into heaven, there are not multiple ways to get there. There is one way to be saved, and that is through Jesus. A red traffic light doesn’t mean stop sometimes and go other times. No, it always means stop to drivers. The same is true with Jesus. He is always the way to heaven. He’s not one of multiple ways to get there, He is the only way.

If you haven’t already, decide to believe that Jesus is the way to God. Choose to accept Him and the fact that He is the way to heaven.
