Dear Trinity Families,
Here is your WELS Devotion
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.
There Is No Other
Have you been to an electronics store recently? Walk to the back of the store, and you will discover a wall of televisions. Literally, the entire wall will be covered with flat-screen TVs. The challenge is choosing which one to buy. There are different sizes, different features, and different prices. The choices seem endless.
When it comes to our relationship with God, the situation is very different. There are not many different paths to God. There is only one. His name is Jesus Christ. Only Jesus can save us from eternal separation from God because only Jesus did what we needed to have done. He lived a perfect life in our place. He died to make payment for our sins. And he rose from the grave to defeat death and guarantee us eternal life.
The worst that could happen if you walk out of an electronics store with the “wrong” TV is that you won’t get as clear a picture as you could have had. But, walk out of this life with anyone or anything other than Jesus, and you won’t have the eternal life you could have had. Don’t allow this to happen. Trust Jesus—the only name by which we must be saved.
Lord Jesus, thank you for doing everything necessary to save me. Keep me close to you until I sing your name in the heaven that you are preparing for me. Amen.
