Why Jesus is the Way to Union with God
because we trust in the living God,
who is the Saviour of all men,
specially of those that believe.
1 Timothy 4:9-10
Christ's teachings are the ultimate in the way to become holy and become one with God; classic challenges to those who would be his followers are:
So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple. Luke 14:33
And whosoever does not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:27
He that finds his life shall lose it, and he that loses his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 10:39
For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him. 2 Tim 2:11-12
Of all the guides and teachers in history, Christ stands far above in holiness and perfection. His death on the cross is the physical example that we must follow with the inward cross of self-denial to find God, to have God dwell in us, to be with God, to have union with Christ and the Father, while on earth, and to live with Him now and forever.
He has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them
you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. 2 Peter 1:4
