No One Else
Posted: November 01, 2016
In our culture today, whether we realize it or not, there are many people who believe there is more than one way to salvation.
As long as you’re a nice person, or as long as your lifestyle isn’t hurting anybody, or as long as you do enough good deeds while on earth, or as long as your parents are Christians, or as long as you’re spiritual in some way, surely you’ll go to heaven!
Unfortunately, those beliefs are totally misguided and unscriptural!
Paul says in Philippians 3:9, “I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.”
If you go back a few verses in Philippians 3, you’ll see that Paul had every reason to boast about his citizenship, righteousness, and good deeds for the church in his day. But ultimately, none of that mattered! All that mattered was knowing and having faith in Christ, for that’s the only way to salvation!
“There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”
- Acts 4:12 NLT
Lord, forgive me if I’ve believed the lies that there are other ways to salvation. I declare that Jesus is the only way to salvation and eternal life in Heaven, and I thank you for allowing me to have that salvation through my faith in Christ. In Jesus’ name, amen.
