I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved…-John 10:9
Queens and chimney-sweeps must enter heaven by the same gate, or not enter at all…Christ will never alter the gospel one jot or tittle, not the cross of a “t” nor the dot of an “i”-to please the biggest man that lives. “Oh! but, really, I am a man of education; am I to be saved in the same way as the man who does not know A from B?” Precisely; there is no other way of salvation for you. There is not one gate for Doctors of Divinity and another for the poor and ignorant. “But I am a person of good character, a matronly woman; am I to be saved just in the same way as a Magdalene?” Precisely the same; there is no other Saviour for you than the one in whom Mary Magdalene delighted and trusted. “But, sir, you do not surely mean to say that all these street Arabs are to go to heaven in the same way as a man who has kept shop, and been respectable, all his life!” Yes, I do; all must go in exactly the same road.
There is but one name given among men whereby we must be saved; there is no other Saviour but Christ Jesus the Lord; He suits every class of persons, big sinners and little ones, if there are any little sinners anywhere. All must come to Christ, and at His feet confess their sin, for God’s plan cannot be altered for anyone…Nay, nay, nay; come to Christ, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and He will give you rest, for there is no other way of obtaining rest of heart and conscience.~ C.H. Spurgeon
