As the earth rotates around the sun, it tilts at a 23-degree angle. That precise tilt gives us our four seasons: summer, fall, winter, and spring. If the tilt were more or less, the earth would be too cold or too hot to sustain life. God was very precise in designing the earth to make it suitable for our temporary life. So we are not surprised that God gives us the precise way to have eternal life. From Genesis to Revelation, God reveals His precise plan for us to avoid eternal death and gain eternal life. The central message of the Bible is this: God created us; we are lost without Him; God has sent His Son to provide eternal life for all who desire it. One place where Jesus explicitly gives us this wonderful truth is John, Chapter 14. Before He died, He told His disciples, “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When every thing is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.” Thomas expressed ignorance of where Jesus was going and how to get there. So Jesus then declared, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” Jesus does not merely point the way, or teach the way; He is the precise way to the Father and eternal life.
