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 changed,” he replied quickly. “I’m looking for some loopholes.”
No matter how hard he searched, he never discovered 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 contradictions.
Others have difficulty in accepting God’s Word as the 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. They want to believe that there are many paths that lead to heaven and truth. What they want to believe comes from man-originated beliefs – not the Word of God.
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 God’s salvation. While there are some problems that may have more than one solution, when it comes to being forgiven of our sins, there is only One solution. Salvation and eternal life is by grace through faith in Christ alone.
Prayer: Thank You, Father, for Your Son Jesus, in whose Name and through whose life’s work we can be saved. May we accept Your salvation through faith in Him. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: Acts 4:12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
