No Other Way… {Scripture Saturday}

Welcome to Scripture Saturday!  Today we continue our memorization of verses found in Acts with verse 4:12…

And there is salvation in no one else, for there is not other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

Peter is echoing what Jesus said about Himself, “there is salvation in no one else…”

That means that you cannot be saved by being good.  You cannot be saved by keeping the law. Remember what Paul said, “for if righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose” (Gal 2:21) and "For by works of the law no human being will be justified in His sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.” (Romans 3:20) You also cannot be saved by being sincere or buy your salvation.

"My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness, I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus' name.”

God has made only one way for salvation, and there are no short cuts.  Jesus is the way whereby you must be saved.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him.” (John 3:16-17)

“‘Therefore my people shall know my name. Therefore in that day they shall know that it is I who speak; here I am. How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, ‘Your God reigns.’” (Isaiah 52:6-7)
Have a blessed and precious day everyone!
