The One Who Saves
Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given
among men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12
A book on my shelf describes a marshal in Napoleon’s army who was completely devoted to the emperor. One day, the marshal was mortally wounded in battle. As he lay dying in his tent, he called for Napoleon, who soon came.
The officer thought the emperor could save his life. But Napoleon just shook his head and turned away. The book describes the tragic scene: “As the dying man felt the cold, merciless hand of death drawing him irresistibly behind the curtain of the unseen world, he was still heard to cry out, ‘Save me, Napoleon! Save me!'” In the hour of death, that soldier discovered that even Napoleon could not save him.
Similarly, when a person seeks deliverance from spiritual death, he finds that no human being has the power to save—no minister of the gospel, no priest, not even those who are great prayer warriors. Only the Lord Jesus can save a soul. The Bible says, “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
Have you asked Jesus to save you? If not, do it now! He always answers those who plead for His mercy and put their trust in Him. He is the only One who saves.
Thank You, Lord God, that You save all who come to You through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
