NO OTHER NAME
“ Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” ( Acts 4:12 )
A violent group once threatened to kill a popular pastor if he preached one more sermon about Jesus. Was this in China or Russia or North Korea? No! It was in Los Angeles, CA. The police told the pastor that he shouldn’t get in the pulpit the following Sunday, but the pastor said, “ It’s your job to keep me living, and my job to keep on preaching!” The church deacons came and sat on the front row to keep an eye out and the pastor preached on the name of Jesus. He said, “ I want to call His name out loud! So if it’s my last time and a bullet strikes me down, I want to go out saying, JESUS!” And I feel the same way, what better way for the Lord to call me home than to be in the pulpit on Sunday morning proclaiming Jesus and leave this old world! No other name has the power of Jesus. No other name can raise the dead, no other name can give strength to the weak, no other name can save the lost, no other name can defeat the demons, no other name can get us through the heartache and perilous times we see in this old world! Only Jesus could offer Himself as the perfect righteous sacrifice for my sin and your sin and shed His blood as an everlasting atonement! If we reject Christ, we are rejecting the only possible way by which we can receive forgiveness and salvation and eternal life! No matter what secular preachers say or Oprah says or Dr. Phil says or a politically correct society says! THERE IS NO OTHER NAME! JESUS, JESUS, JESUS!
Love In Christ Jesus!
