πŸ‘‘ A Saviour Who Will Save

β€œ…Jesus Christ of Nazareth… Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:10,12).

A frequent objection made against Christianity is that every religion has β€œgood” 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 no one standard to gauge everyone’s β€œgoodness?” They are β€œgood” according to whom, according to what standard? Remember, relative morality actually does not help the sinnerβ€”he may be a β€œbetter” sinner than another, but he is also a β€œworse” sinner than yet another, and whether β€œbetter” or β€œworse,” he is still a sinner!

The God of the Bible has a simple method for determining righteousness. Today, He sees two types of peopleβ€”saints and lost people. While both groups were born in sins (Ephesians 2:1-3), β€œshapen in iniquity [in the womb]” (Psalm 51:5), and β€œcondemned already” (John 3:18), only the saints have come to realize their lost state. Job asked in Job 9:2, β€œHow should a man be just [righteous, acceptable] with God?” Saints have come to the acknowledgement that they needed God’s righteousness, that they had a massive sin debt that they could never satisfy, that their β€œrighteousnesses are as filthy rags” (Isaiah 64:6), that they could never possibly make themselves right before a holy God (He is the standard; Romans 3:23). The lost people, however, do not realize they are lost, for they believe their religious works β€œscore points” 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, β€œAnointed Saviour” (cf. Psalm 2:2; Matthew 1:21). As the writer of the book of Hebrews said, β€œ[Jesus] is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him” (7:25). Literally, no world religion has such a β€œSaviour” as Jesus Christ! source

Bible Verse for 4/20/19

But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. — 1 Corinthians 15:20-22
