No Other Name

(Please read Tuesday's, August 28th, post which is a companion thought to the post below.)

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.

There are many famous names in the history of religious thought - names such as Mohammed, Buddha, Confusius, Joseph Smith, among a host of others. Each has a multitude of followers who pay homage to their name.

But there is only one name that saves one's soul eternally, the Lord Jesus Christ. This exclusivity necessarily results from the fact that there is only one God and Creator of all men, and that all men have rebelled against Him. God Himself has become Redeemer and Saviour, dying for the sin of the world and rising again. There can, therefore, be no other Saviour than God Himself.

Please consider these verses found in God's Word, the Bible;

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
1 John 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

It is extremely urgent, therefore, that anyone desiring forgiveness of their sin and eternal salvation come to God through Jesus Christ. Read what the Word of God says about the fate of those who do not trust Jesus Christ now as their personal Saviour will receive when He returns;

2 Thes. 1:7-9 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

Friend, there is no other name but Jesus, and He is the only way to Heaven!!! He is the only avenue of escape from the eternal punishment of Hell as the result of your sin. Won't you trust him this very moment to save you from the penalty of your sin???
