Scripture: Acts (NIV) 4:12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.
Observation: What a dirty trick it would have been for God the Father to send his son to die for the sins of man if there had been another way for man to be saved. Jesus was convinced that there was no other way. He had to die or man could not be free from sin. In this verse Peter is speaking before the religious leaders of Israel. Peter and John had been arrested because of a healing done in the name of Jesus who these leaders had recently crucified.
Application: God the Father was so convinced that there was no other way for man to be saved that He sent His only son to die for my sins. Jesus was so convinced that there was no other way that He was willing to suffer the great agony of the cross. The apostles were so convinced that they were willing to go to jail and give their lives for telling others that Jesus is the ONLY way. Now it is my turn.
Prayer: Lord, You are the only way. There is no other name under heaven by which we can be saved! Lord, I believe that now help me act like it is true. Help me tell others. Amen
