Salvation only in Jesus

Salvation from the guilt of sin, the penalty of sin, and one day in heaven the presence of sin for the rest of eternity. Some believe they can earn this salvation. Others believe that when this life is over God will simply extend grace  and salvation to every person. Neither of those beliefs agree with the truth as taught in the Scripture.

Jesus states about Himself in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." This a foundation to the Christian life. Jesus is our salvation. The first disciples understood this truth. Peter declared: "There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to people by which we must be saved" (Romans 4:12).

How does one come to Jesus for this salvation? There is the confession of sin. There is repentance or turning from sin to Jesus. There is a life-long process of following Jesus; where there is sanctification (the process of knocking off the rough edges - sin of our lives).

Is Jesus you way of salvation? Who do you need to share this information with?

Praying today for:
