Acts 4:12 Only One Name That Works

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12

Driving down the road to a destination can often offer different ways to get to the desired location. Map programs will often change the route due to road construction, an accident or very congested traffic. The process of getting to the destination can be short or very long, depending upon which route the person takes.

It is commonly believed that destination to heaven is done in the same way, that there are multiple ways to get there.

After being arrested for preaching about Jesus, Peter was taken into prison. When confronted about it, he tells the leaders that there is only one name by which all mankind must be saved.

One of the common destinations of people around the world is what occurs after death. People are looking for heaven or eternal life.

All throughout the history of mankind, there have arisen many different beliefs as to how a person may get into heaven. Most rely upon what one does or does not do, being self-earned. Some rely upon pure chance and luck of the gods.

Regardless of how many different ‘ways’ there are in this world, there is in truth, only one way to get into heaven. That one way is by Jesus.

Jesus taught that He was the only way to the Father–to heaven. Either He was a fool, a liar, or else He was telling the truth. There is too much proof that Jesus spoke the truth, to believe that He is not the only way to be saved.

Every believer must be willing to tell the world that Jesus is the way to salvation. And every person must be willing to believe on Jesus in order to be saved.

You may or may not be a believer in Jesus. You may or may not be looking at the many different religions of this world.

Take time to read the Bible and see who Jesus really is. Realize that He is the only way to be saved and to gain eternal life in heaven. Choose today to believe in Him, and then proclaim that word to the rest of this world.

Without Jesus, you nor anyone else can be saved or get into heaven. He is the only way.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will know what Jesus has done for you; that God will open your eyes to falsehood of other religions; that you will proclaim Jesus as salvation to the world; and that God will strengthen you to turn away from false beliefs.
