DAILY DEVOTION, May 17, 2022
There is no salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12).
I used this verse back in 1987 in a resolution presented to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The resolution asked the assembly to approve the idea that Jesus is the only Savior, and that apart from Him, there is no salvation. My resolution was never approved. The majority believed that salvation may be found in other religions. Eventually, this led to many congregations leaving that denomination. Our church in Warsaw is now an independent Christian Church. We have no problem affirming that Jesus alone is the Savior of the world.
If you want a relationship with God, the forgiveness of sins, and a home in heaven, you need to do business with Jesus. There is no other name save His that can lead you to God. I am thankful to be in a church that embraces this wonderful truth. If you think there are other ways to God apart from Jesus, you are probably in the wrong church! Acts 4:12 is quite clear. There is “no other name.”
Father, I cannot find adequate words to thank You for the gift of Your Son. I thank you that when I trusted in Him, I found salvation. I pray for those who are blind to the truth of Jesus that their eyes may be opened. In the name of Jesus, that name which is above all names, I pray. Amen.
