Acts 4:12 says, “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (NKJV).
Philippians 2:9-11, “Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
In John 14:6 Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
There is only one way to get to heaven, and that is through Jesus Christ. There is no other means to get saved but though Him. There is only one way to get our sins forgiven: through the blood of Jesus. Salvation is available to all, but it can only be received through Jesus.
Jesus Christ paid the price for sin by the shedding of His blood to be Savior of the world. He paid the price for sins He did not commit by becoming sin for us upon the cross.
Philippians 2:9-11 “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
Galatians 3:13 “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us.”
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
1 John 5:11-12 “And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.”
John 3:36 “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
There is still a heaven to gain and still a hell to shun. We have a choice to receive or reject the salvation of God. Salvation, eternal life and forgiveness of sin are all a free gift from God available to all. We must call on the name of the Lord to receive this salvation and enter the Kingdom of God.
Romans 10:9-13 “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever beli
eves on Him will not be put to shame. For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Call upon Jesus today! He is waiting and willing to save you, to bless you, to heal you, to set you free from the power of sin. He wants to give you eternal life and help you to become a child of God. Call upon Him. Go to a good Bible-believing church and receive the salvation of God, receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
Just like Ephesians 2:8 says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.”
