There Is No Other Name

Acts 4:12 "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."

There have been many famous names in the area of religion that man has put his trust in. Mohammad, Buddha, Confucius and Joseph Smith are some of those names. Each of those names have a multitude of followers.

But there is only one name that can save for eternity when called upon. That name is the Lord Jesus Christ. The words of our key verse were spoken by the apostle Peter. In I John 5:12 John also stresses this very fact. "He that hath the Son hath life: and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." The apostle Paul wrote that all those "that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ...shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord" in II Thessalonians 1:8-9.

There is only one God and Creator of all men and all men have rebelled against Him. God Himself has become Redeemer and Savior. He died for the sin of the world and rose again. There can be no other Savior than God Himself.

Jesus said in John 14:6 "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 3:18 "He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." John 8:24 "If ye believe not that I am He, ye shall die in your sins."

It is imperative that anyone who wants forgiveness of sin and eternal salvation come to God through Jesus Christ.

John 3:36 "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life: but the wrath of God abideth on him."

If you have already trusted Christ as your Savior then this post will just serve as a reminder to you (as if you need a reminder) of what power is in just speaking His name. If you are reading this and you have not trusted Christ as your personal Savior then let me encourage you that if God is speaking to your heart and showing you that you are lost without Him and that you need Him in your life that you not waste another moment and call on that name that is above every other name (the Lord Jesus Christ) to come into your heart and life.
