Saved by Christ Alone
The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:56-57
How do we have victory over sin and death? Not through Jesus’ mother Mary, not through Buddha, not through Krishna, nor through Mohammad, but through our Lord Jesus Christ. It is important to understand what the Scriptures declare concerning our salvation; it is only through Jesus Christ: “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
Jesus told Thomas, one of His disciples: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).The Apostle Paul also made it clear that salvation was only through Jesus Christ. God desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth: For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all…
(1 Timothy 2:5-6).
Jesus Christ died for our sins. Do you really know what victory was gained by His death on the cross?
…who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began, but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel (2 Timothy 1:9-10).
Are you attempting by your own merits to get to heaven? Have you placed your trust in someone other than Jesus Christ to have your sins forgiven? May the truth of what is taught in the Scriptures lead you to genuine salvation through Jesus Christ alone.
