TOPIC: CHRIST: THE GLORY-LIFE
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12).
There’re people who say, "I believe in Jesus Christ, but He’s not the only Messiah." Anyone who professes or upholds this belief is ignorant of the Scriptures, for the Word of God is clear: salvation comes by no other way, through no other name, except by the name Jesus! You can’t believe in Jesus Christ, and still believe there’s "another" way; He’s the ONLY way! He said, "…I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6). Notice, He didn’t say, "I am a way," but, "I am the way, the truth and the life." He was both definite and emphatic! It’s wrong therefore to say there’re other ways to God, apart from Jesus Christ.
Romans 1:4 tells us that Jesus Christ was declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. No one else has been so described in all of history, only the Lord Jesus. The Scriptures firmly declare that He was raised from the dead, and He’s alive forever more. There’s no book in the world that declares any religious leader to be alive, after death—none. When they died, they were finished. Only Jesus died, was buried, and was raised back to life by the glory of the Father, and physically levitated to heaven in His glorified bodily form. Christianity isn’t among the many religions in the world to join, because it isn’t a religion. It’s the pulsating life of the risen Christ in the human body. It’s divinity alive in humanity; it’s Christ taking up His abode in the quarters of your heart. So, in Christianity, you don’t come into "a religion"; you come into Christ! You embraced the transcendent life of dominion, excellence, power, righteousness, and boundless joy that’s only available in Him.
Dear Father, thank you for the eternal salvation you’ve made available in Christ Jesus, the Great Shepherd; my life is founded in Him. I pray that today, many will receive that grace of God, which has brought salvation to all men, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
