Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
From the beginning, when God came into the Garden of Eden to clothe Adam and Eve’s nakedness as sinners, God determined that there could be no remission of sins without the shedding of blood. (Leviticus 17:11, Hebrews 9:22)
Jesus made outstanding claims through His ministry concerning Himself: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6b) Can you come to the Father by your own works? Can you approach God on the basis of your obedience? There are many who imagine they are Christians because they live according to the golden rule and do the best they can to be good people. In sharp contrast, the Bible teaches that no one will ever be justified by their own works. (Romans 3:20) We must look to Christ. And, what a Savior God has given us in our Lord Jesus Christ! His name is the only name under heaven by which there is salvation.
Through the years there were many who were required to give their lives for this truth. They insisted with their mouths- Jesus alone and they were killed because of their confession. May the testimony and blood of the martyrs strengthen our resolve to live our lives with this confession on our lips and in our hearts. Today, may we give thanks to God for the wonderful gift of a Savior who is Jesus Christ, our Lord.
