THE ONE—THE WAY

Ephesians 4:1-6.

I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me

(John 14:6).

One God – “We know that an idol is nothing at all in the world and that there is no God but one” (1 Corinthians 8:4).

One Jesus Christ – “[F]or us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live” (1 Corinthians 8:6).

One Holy Spirit – “There is one body and one Spirit” (Ephesians 4:4).

One Hope – “—just as you were called to one hope when you were called–” (Ephesians 4:4).

One Faith – “one Lord, one faith, one baptism” (Ephesians 4:5).

One Gospel – “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!” (Galatians 1:6-8). Paul said in Romans 1:16, “I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.”

One Truth – “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).

One Door – “I am the door; whoever enters through Me will be saved” (John 10:9).

One Mediator – “For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1Timothy 2:5).

One Body – “[S]o in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others” (Romans 12:5).

One Salvation – “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).

The Worthy One – “I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside. Then one of the elders said to me, ‘Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals’” (Revelation 5:4-5).

The Almighty One – “’We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, the One who is and who was, because You have taken Your great power and have begun to reign’” (Revelation 11:17).

Jesus is the one and the only way to everlasting life, goodness, grace, holiness, love, and joy.

So let our lips and lives express

The holy gospel we profess;

So let our works and virtues shine,

To prove the doctrine all divine. –Watts
