No Other Name


No Other Name:

"Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)

No. Other. Name. Think about that. Only one Name can save. When in tribulation, call out to Jesus, and watch as He comes to your rescue.

"For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” " (Romans 10:13)

Authority, dominion, divine attributes, and unmatchable  miraculous power are all found in one Name, and that's Jesus Christ. He alone is the Way to eternal life. He alone is the never changing truth, for He cannot lie and will never go back on a word He has spoken. Pure in heart, Holy Saviour, and loving Father. Jesus, You are the Μεσσίας (Messiah)! 

Christ our anointed redeemer, and spotless sacrifice that saved our lives. How precious and glorious You are Χριστός (Christ)!

"If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you...However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name." (1 Peter 4:14,16)

We are Χριστιανός (Christian) meaning we are "of Christ" and we bear His Name. Inside us is the mighty and powerful Spirit of God. The same Spirit that raised Christ from the grave!

"But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you." (Romans 8:11)

Jesus within us and Jesus around us. Jesus protects us and Jesus defends us. Jesus redeems us and Jesus frees us. Jesus cares for us and Jesus loves us. Because of Jesus, we can confidently approach God at any time.

"His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to his eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord. In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence." (Ephesians 3:10-12)

Freedom and confidence. Amazing! The Name of Jesus is an all-access pass to the Presence of the Lord! The Name of Jesus is a ticket to the glorious realm of heaven, where we'll spend eternity with our lovely Saviour (nothing is better than that)! 

The Name of Jesus is a refuge and shelter. The Name of Jesus is above all. There is no one like our Lord Jesus. He has conquered sin and death. Through JESUS we are victorious, full of hope, always supplied with mercy and grace, and never ever alone. There is simply NO OTHER NAME!

Walk confidently in the Name of Jesus Christ. Remember that we are the bearers of His Name. Lift your head up to the heavens and allow His face to shine on yours, so that you too can radiate the glow of God's glorious compassion. We live in the everlasting grace of our Saviour Jesus. Never forget it. No. Other. Name.
