WHAT MUST ONE UNDERSTAND IN ORDER TO BECOME A CHILD OF GOD? (3) by Garland M. Robinson

One must understand that only in Jesus Christ can one have forgiveness (salvation) from sins and peace with God. The religions of the world think there are many saviors. But salvation is found in only one þ Jesus the Christ, the only begotten Son of God (John 3:16). Jesus plainly said, I am the way, the truth, and the life: and no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6).        

When Peter and John were being examined for healing the lame man at the gate of the temple, they said, “Be it known unto you all…that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead… This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:10-12).         Christ died on a cross and shed his precious blood in order to obtain the forgiveness of sins for all humanity (Matthew 26:28). “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. … But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life (Romans 5:6-10,1-2). “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” (1 Peter 1:18-19).         Only Jesus has the words of eternal life (John 6:68). Jesus said, “…if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins” (John 8:24). God made Jesus, Lord and Christ (Acts 2:36) and appointed Him judge of the living and dead (Acts 10:42; John 5:22). There is no other foundation (1 Corinthians 3:11). “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all…” (1 Timothy 2:5-6).         Do you believe? Don’t let life slip by without obeying the Savior, Jesus the Christ. There’s no salvation without it (Matthew 7:21-23).
