There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12 NLT
Water swirled around my head and stifled my cries.
I enjoyed time with friends at a pool. Four of us floated on an intertube in the shallow end. As an eight-year-old, my parents had not taught me how to swim. But my friends wanted to go to the deep end.
As my grip loosened from the pool’s concrete edge—and the intertube pulled away—I slipped beneath the water. Before I succumbed, one of my friends jumped in and rescued me.
As Peter stood before a ruling council who questioned how he and John had healed a crippled man, Peter told them about another rescue and the one way it happened: Jesus delivered humanity from sin’s penalty through His sacrifice on the cross.
We might like to think there are many ways to heaven, but the Bible says there’s only one. Jesus paid our sin debt on Calvary’s cross. When we believe that and ask Him to forgive our sins, He raises us from the waters of sin we’re drowning in.
Have you trusted the only one who can deliver you from your sin’s penalty?

Prayer: Jesus, we look to You for salvation, believing there is salvation in no other name.
