September 12th, 2013

LarryMiles1In Acts 8:4 we read, “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by  which we must be saved.” This passage  declares that  salvation is in the name of  Jesus Christ. When the Bible  uses the expression “in the name of,”as used here, and in Acts 2:38, it means by the authority of.

Many are saying  today that it does not matter what you believe in or  who you believe in. This is not the case. A world that is under the sentence of death needs a  redeemer. In John 14:6 we read the following. “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the  Father, but through Me..'”

The early  church declared that Jesus was  the only  hope of the world. Let’s lift up Jesus to a dying world. Let the world know what Jesus means  to us. Jesus Christ offers the only hope this world and  He can and will deliver on  His promise.
