““The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers—it is to him you shall listen—” (Deuteronomy 18:15)
“Therefore, as to the eating of food offered to idols, we know that “an idol has no real existence,” and that “there is no God but one.” For although there may be so-called gods in heaven or on earth—as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”— yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.” (1 Corinthians 8:4–6)
Jesus, the Creator of the world, is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Contrary to popular belief, there is only one way to the Father, and that is through Jesus. There are many ideas, religions and philosophies out there, as there has been for centuries, but there is only one Truth, and that is Jesus. Through Jesus, with the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit, we see the Father and come to Him.

Almighty God, You know we live in the midst of so many dangers that in our frailty we cannot stand upright. Grant strength and protection to support us in all dangers and carry us through all temptations; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
