but the Name of Jesus!
The Unique Role of Jesus in Creation and Salvation
"There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other Name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. " (Acts 4:12)
Everything was created through Jesus
The Universe was created through Jesus and mankind was created through Jesus:
"He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation; for in Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities - all things were created through Him and for Him. He is before all things and in Him all things hold together." (Colossians 1:15-19)
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God; all things were made through Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made." (John 1:1-3)
Jesus became like us, that we might become like Him!
"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us" (John 1:14)
"His divine power has granted to us all things
that pertain to life and godliness, through knowledge of Him who called
us to His own glory and excellence, by which He has granted to us His
precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape from
the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers
of the divine nature."
"If a man loves Me, he will keep My word, and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him." (John 14:23)
There is Power in the Name of Jesus
"Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the Name which is above every other name, that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:9-11)
Jesus is the only way to the Father
"For there is one God and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Jesus Christ." (1 Timothy 2:5-6)
"I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)
"Truly, truly I say unto you, if you ask anything of the Father, He will give it to you in my Name. Hitherto you have asked nothing in my Name; ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full." (John 16:23-24)
Salvation only through Jesus
There is salvation only through Jesus. We cannot get to Heaven through putting our faith in anyone or anything else.
"There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)
"I am the way, the truth and the life; no one can come to the Father, but by Me." (John 14: 6)
"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
"In Him we have redemption, through His precious
blood." (Ephesians 1:7)
