The Only Way To God. 1 Timothy 2:5-6
“5) For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6) who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time.” 1 Timothy‬ ‭2:5-6‬
We now see the exclusive nature of the gospel. There is only one true God. The Bible presents Him as the Creator of heaven and earth and all life. He is the God who created mankind in His own image. This distinguishes Him from all false gods.
There is only one way into relationship with this God. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and man. There is no other way of salvation. (Acts 4:12) He gave Himself as a ransom for all of mankind. Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life. (John 14:6)
The timing of His birth, public ministry, death and resurrection was at the right time in human history. The Old Testament looked forward to Him. The four Gospels focused on Him. The rest of the New Testament looks back at Him and celebrates Him!
The gospel is His story. Salvation is for those who place faith in Him and thereby enter into personal a relationship with Him. He desires all men to be saved, but many will reject Him and die in unbelief.
