No One Else!

There is salvation in no one else!  God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12). 

This statement is anathema to a world that doesn’t believe it.  But what strikes me this morning as I read it is how comforting it is to a believer - to me - otherwise overwhelmed by the weight of the world and of my need for salvation.  I could be looking for solutions all over the place.  And sometime it seems like salvation is on the line with every responsibility I fail at.  It’s not.  Salvation does not come that way.  It came finally, fully, comprehensively and only through Jesus.  I will find salvation no where else and in no one else, including and especially in myself.  What a relief to know in whom it comes.
