Getting A Second Opinion

A farmer had been suffering from a rash on his leg and finally decided to visit a dermatologist to determine the cause. After a number of tests, the doctor was able to determine the cause. He called the farmer into his office and said, “Sir, after all of the tests and examinations, the results show that you are allergic to your dog. You will have to get rid of him.”

“No, sir,” replied the farmer emphatically. “It’s easier to get another doctor than another good bird dog. I’d rather get some other opinions and wait until I find someone who says I can keep my dog.”

There are many people who will not accept the fact that “There is salvation in no one else,” as Peter declared. This is not something that came from Peter or the other disciples; it came from Jesus Himself.

It was God’s decision to designate Jesus to be the Savior of the world. He has no equal and no one or no thing can take His place. It is important to be open-minded on many things, seeking information from many sources before making a decision. But God’s Word says: “There is no other name in all of heaven for people to call upon to save them.”

Prayer: Thank You, Father, for that name which is above every name, the name of Jesus, who can save us. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Scripture for Today: Acts 4:12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
