“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
Jesus came to earth to be our Savior…the Savior of our hearts. Because of our sin we were all lost!
Now, I know this isn’t a popular statement to make in our culture today. No one really wants to hear that they’re a sinner, much less that they’re lost on their own. We all want to believe that we’re self-sufficient.
But that’s not what the Bible tells us. In fact, if I could reduce the message of the entire Bible down to two words it would simply be, “Jesus saves.” The Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. This was promised and provided in Christ only.
The salvation spoken of in today’s verse includes everyone. No one is excluded! Jesus didn’t die just for a select few. He died for you and He died for me. Jesus came to be the Savior of the world and God’s desire is that every man, woman, boy, and girl be saved.
God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance! So take time today to thank God for sending us His Son…and for the eternal life you have in Him. And take the time to share that good news with someone who needs to hear it today!
take time to praise and thank god for the salvation you have in jesus christ.
