Someone asked; why do you have to always use the name of Jesus? Aren’t Buddha,and Hindu,and Mohammed,and all these other religions all trying to reach the same God? Well they are trying to reach their version of Heaven, but true Christianity teaches us that God is reaching out to man through his Son Jesus Christ, and not man through his good works trying to attain God and Heaven.The Bible teaches us “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”( Ephesians 2:8,9). In fact Jesus himself said “I am the way,the truth,and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”(John 14:6).These are God’s terms and conditions.”For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”(John 3:16).The fact is, that you could never be good enough to go to Heaven.“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;” (Titus 3:5). “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” (Isaiah 64:6). “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:6).“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”(Jeremiah 17:9).“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23). Jesus said; If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.” (John 15:22). In other words if someone hasn’t heard about Jesus and what he did for them, then they are not accountable.That is why Jesus gave us the great commission to go into all the world and preach the Gospel,THE GOOD NEWS to everyone.(Mark 16:15).That is why we teach and preach and live in the Name of Jesus Christ! “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”(Acts 4:12).”The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”(I John 1:7b). Only through faith in Jesus Christ and his shed blood for you to take away your sins; can you go to Heaven, by God’s Grace. GRACE is a Gift Received At Christ’s Expense. You can never be to bad for Jesus to save you, only to good, by thinking that you could save yourself by your own good works, and that you don’t need Jesus.
Say this prayer to be saved:Jesus, I want to know you and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
