The famous entertainer, W. C. Fields, was an agnostic. One day, a friend came to visit him and found him reading the Bible.
“Bill,” he exclaimed, “it’s so good to see that you are reading the Bible. When did you change and become a Christian?”
“I haven’t,” he replied quickly. “I’m looking for loopholes.”
No matter how hard he might search, he will never discover a loophole in God’s Word.
There are many who do the same thing. They do not study God’s Word to learn of His salvation and grace. They read it looking for errors and omissions.
Others have difficulty in accepting God’s Word as the one final authority for truth. They do not want to believe that there is no other name besides the name of Jesus that they can call upon for salvation. This fact did not come from the church or any religious movement. It is a promise of God found in His Word.
God designated Jesus to be the only Redeemer and Savior. There never has been nor ever will be any other name for people to call upon for salvation. While there are some problems that may have more than one solution, when it comes to being forgiven of our sin, there is only One. Salvation is by grace through faith in Christ.
Prayer: Thank You, Father, for Your Son Jesus, in whose name and through His work we find salvation. 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.”
