“And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12
Last night talking to my 5 year old, he was saying to me “You can get anything from Amazon” then he started listed off all the things you can buy from Amazon. And he’s right , you can buy a lot of stuff from Amazon, however this got me thinking…
The important things we cant buy from Amazon, for example salvation. We can’t buy our own Salvation from Amazon or Walmart, this is not something we are even capable of purchasing. Some might say, “Your thinking to far into this” but think about it, where can you obtain your salvation?
Some might say, why do we need salvation? What is salvation? The definition of salvation is deliverance or preservation. The fact is, whether your religious or not, your going to die someday. Where are you going to go when you die? You don’t know? Shouldn’t you find out? Shouldn’t you ponder the purpose of your life and your destination?
Regardless of what your “worldview” is, you have to deal with the questions about mortality, because it’s a reality for everyone. Death is not exclusive, it doesn’t just swallow up the Christians or the Jews, it swallows up everyone including Atheists and Agnostics.
For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:20
Guess what , those who believe in Christ, have been bought with a price. What is that price? The price was the debt Jesus paid on the cross. The suffering , the anguish, the humiliation that he suffered was to buy you Salvation.
So if your looking to buy Salvation, look to the only one who can pay the price, Jesus Christ. Come to the Cross, Come to Jesus Christ Amen!
