You have heard the expression, "The Lord makes a way where there seems to be no way". There are situations that we face where there seems to be no way that it will work out. Or there seems to be no way of escape. There seemed to be no way for the disciples to escape death during the storm, but Jesus made a way by calming the storm. There seemed to be no way of survival for the three Hebrews in the furnace, but the Lord made a way for them to come out unharmed.
But when it comes to our salvation the phrase is not-- there seemed to be no way. The truth is-- there was no way. When man sinned against God in the garden, there was no way for him to make it right with God. There was no way for him to be saved from his now sinful state. There was no way for him to be forgiven and restored to right relationship with God. There was no way for him to have eternal life.
Man tried to make a way by sewing fig leaves together to cover his nakedness/sin. Man has tried to make his own way by keeping a set of laws, rules and commandments. Man has tried to make a way through religious deeds. He has tried through his own goodness. He has tried everything, but to no avail. There was no way!
There was no way until God sent His Only Begotten Son Jesus into the world to make a way for us. He became the way through His death on the cross, burial and resurrection. The question is not whether there only seems to be a way, but, "is there a way?." The answer-- there is a way. The next question is, "Have you gotten on that way? Have you received the way that was provided for you?". All the ways you can come up with will never be good enough-- although they may seem to be. There is only one way--- Jesus.
Have a great day. There was no way to be saved before Jesus came, and then He made the way.
