chocolat cakeI’ve heard it said that it doesn’t really matter what ‘religion’ we follow because we are all trying to get to the same place anyway. As all-inclusive and non-judgmental as this may sound… as much as we might want it to be true, it simply can’t be.

For analogy purposes, say our life’s goal… the ‘same place’ (Heaven) we all seek, is a ‘Chocolate Cake’. Guaranteed, the only people who will end up actually making a Chocolate Cake, are those who in fact have a recipe for chocolate cake that includes all the right ingredients… and the recipe is followed. Grabbing any recipe we choose will not end up producing a chocolate cake. Yes, we might make our favorite cheese cake, casserole, bread, cookies, chili, or whatever… but if a chocolate cake is the goal, only the right recipe will produce a chocolate cake.

Life is the same. If Heaven is that ‘same place’ we all desire, let’s make sure we have the right ‘recipe’ and are careful to follow it. It would be pretty sucky to hope and believe we’ve been living a life for a chocolate cake, but find out too late that we were ‘blind’ to the fact that all along, we’ve been following the recipe for tuna casserole.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6
