Part 6 of 6 Jesus and the Cross Holy Week Reflections
Acts 4:12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.
The last verse of the six Jesus and the Cross Holy Week Reflections tells us there is only ONE way to be saved. “Saved from what” you might ask.
We must be saved from the very just, very holy wrath of God which will rightly judge sin. We must be saved from the sin that “so easily entangles us” (Heb 12:1) and causes us to be in direct opposition with a holy God.
We must be saved from the place of torment, a place of weeping and gnashing of teeth (Jesus’ words), a place of eternal fire called Hell which has been prepared for those who reject Christ as Lord and Savior.
We must be saved from thinking that we can somehow save ourselves with our good deeds, our family connection, or our acts of charity in this world. We can’t do anything to out weigh our sin debt.
We must be saved. The Bible, God’s inspired Word, tells us there is only ONE way for sinners to be saved. That one way is by placing our faith, trust, hope, heart and life into the loving arms of Jesus Christ, who died on the cross and was risen again to life.
That is what Easter, or as I prefer to call it Resurrection Sunday, is all about.
