Salvation Comes Only through Faith in Christ
Construction Zone 9: God's Gift - Salvation
In whom alone must we trust to forgive our sins and to make us fit for eternal life with God?
We must trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, and in Him alone. Acts 4:12a – Nor is there salvation in any other.
This Truth Makes
When the word “name” is used in Acts 4:12 it is talking about Jesus’ power and authority. There is no other power or authority Who can or will save us from sins.
Because we are sinners, we are in bondage to sin and the penalty of sin. (See 1 John 5:19.) Unless Someone powerful can rescue us, we are really helpless to escape sin or sin’s penalty. Without a strong enough Savior, we would stay in bondage, and we would suffer the pains of eternal death forever.
Jesus Christ came to rescue sinners! The payment for sin was paid by Christ, and it was received and accepted by the Father. Without Christ, the only future we could hope for would be an eternity in hell. But with Christ, we can hope for eternal LIFE!
