๐Ÿ‘‘ A Saviour Who Will Save

โ€œโ€ฆJesus Christ of Nazarethโ€ฆ Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be savedโ€ย (Actsย 4:10,12).

Todayโ€™s Scripture tells us whoย aloneย can save man from the everlasting hellfire he deserves!

A frequent objection made against Christianity is that every religion has โ€œgoodโ€ members, and to ignore them and limit heaven to a few Christians is unfair. This is a defected notion. How does one arrive at a definite conclusion when there is noย oneย standard to gauge everyoneโ€™s โ€œgoodness?โ€ They are โ€œgoodโ€ according to whom, according to what standard? Remember, relative morality actually doesย notย help the sinnerโ€”he may be a โ€œbetterโ€ sinner than another, but he is also a โ€œworseโ€ sinner than yet another, and whether โ€œbetterโ€ or โ€œworse,โ€ย he is still a sinner!

The God of the Bible has a simple method for determining righteousness. Today, He sees two types of peopleโ€”saints and lost people. While both groups were born in sins (Ephesians 2:1-3),ย โ€œshapen in iniquity [in the womb]โ€ (Psalm 51:5), andย โ€œcondemned alreadyโ€ย (Johnย 3:18), only the saints have come to realize their lost state. Job asked in Job 9:2,ย โ€œHow should a man be just [righteous, acceptable] with God?โ€ย Saints have come to the acknowledgement that they needed Godโ€™s righteousness, that they had a massive sin debt that they could never satisfy, that theirย โ€œrighteousnesses are as filthy ragsโ€ย (Isaiah 64:6), that they could never possibly make themselves rightย before a holy Godย (Heย isย thestandard; Romansย 3:23). The lost people, however, doย notย realize they are lost, for they believe their religious works โ€œscore pointsโ€ with God and make up for their sinful deeds (2 Corinthians 4:3,4). They ignore the finished crosswork of Jesus Christ as sufficient payment for their sins (1 Corinthians 15:3,4).

Saints have come by faith to Jesus Christ, whose name literally means, โ€œAnointed Saviourโ€ (cf. Psalm 2:2; Matthewย 1:21). As the writer of the book of Hebrews said,ย โ€œ[Jesus] is able also toย saveย them to the uttermost that come unto God by himโ€ย (7:25).ย Literally, no world religion has such a โ€œSaviourโ€ as Jesus Christ! source
