Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.
The Lord Jesus was intolerant toward sin. He was tolerant toward sinners, but intolerant toward the evil which enslaved them. To the adulteress He said, “Neither do I condemn you: go, and sin no more” (John 8:11). He forgave her because He loved her; but He condemned sin because He loathes it with a holy hatred.
God has always been intolerant of sin! His Word says: “Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes; cease to do evil” (Isaiah 1:16).
Christ was so intolerant of sin that He died on the cross to free us from its power. "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). Sin lies at the root of society's difficulties today.
But the Cross is God's answer to sin. To all who will receive the blessed news of salvation through Christ, it forever crosses out and cancels sin's power.
At Calvary, Christ took upon Himself all of our sins, and He allowed God's punishment for sin to fall upon Him. Today, the cross is a place of refuge for all who would escape the judgement of sin. Take your place with Him at the Cross; stand by the Cross; yield your life to Christ who redeemed you on the Cross.
God is intolerant of sin. That intolerance sent His Son to die for us. He has said “that whosoever believes on Him shall not perish.” The clear implication is that those who refuse to believe in Christ shall be eternally lost. Come to Christ today. Come the “Narrow Way” which is the only way by which we can come to God, and that narrow way is through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Father God, I want to live in harmony with others, but grant me I pray, boldness to be intolerant when it come to the way of salvation, which is found only in Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
