Listen And Prosper : Daily Christian Prayers, Bible Verses & Devotionals


No Other Name

‘Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.’ Acts 4:12 (NIV).

There is no other who has the power to save us. Nor is there no other name to whom God has given authority.  There is no other Life Giver. Nor is there no other name worth adoring but Jesus.

Many people react strongly or stumble over the fact that there is no other name than that of Jesus to call on for salvation. Yet this is not something that the church or a person way back in antiquity decided upon.

This is a specific teaching of Jesus Himself. In John 14:6 He explained, “I am the Way, I am the Truth, and I am the Life. No one comes next to the Father except through union with me.” If God designated Jesus to be the Savior of the world, no one else can be His equal. This is an essential teaching of our faith.

Christians are to be open-minded on many issues, but not on this one. No other religious teacher could die for our sins; no other religious teacher came to earth as God’s only Son; no other religious teacher rose from the dead. Our total focus and commitment should be on Jesus, the One whom God offered as the way to have an eternal relationship with Himself.

Some people may argue that salvation in Jesus alone is a path to the Father that is limited, inflexible or too narrow minded. In reality however, it is wide enough and easy enough for the whole world, if the world chooses to accept it. Rather than worrying about how limited it sounds to have only one way, we should be saying, “Thank you, God, for providing a sure way to live life now and eternally with you.”

Prayer:

‘Jesus, thank you for your beautiful name in which I can experience salvation and eternity with you. Forgive me for my doubts. Help me to trust in your powerful name and live to worship you alone.’

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,

AMEN!

Final Thoughts:

Is the name of Jesus a stumbling block for us? Are we tempted to consider other ways to the Father? We may find ourselves thinking that surely other religions offer an alternative path that is just as likely to lead to God.

Let’s come back to the truth and simplicity of the gospel: to the teaching of Jesus Himself, who said there is, regardless of our doubting hearts, no other name by which we can be saved.

Be Greatly Blessed!
