Only One Faith! – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional January 13th



(Believe This: Jesus Christ Gave His Life For Everybody)

TO THE BIBLE: Ephesians 4:4-6 ESV
“There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”

Consider this: Jesus Christ is the only One sent to save humanity. While religious leaders engaged in wars, killing and forcing people to accept their beliefs, Jesus took a different path. He sacrificed His own life for all.

Think about that! Who would you think loves you? The one who punished and killed others for not listening to him or the one who gave His life for them so they could live? Jesus gave His life in your place for you to know that you’re valuable to God.

Maybe you’re reading this and you’ve never been born again; you must understand this: Salvation comes through no other name or means except by Jesus Christ: “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).

Since there’s no salvation in any other, there couldn’t be “other faiths” like some people think.

We read it in our opening verse; there’s “one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all….”
And 1 Corinthians 8:6 says, “…For us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.”

In John 14:6, Jesus was unequivocal when He said, “…I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” He used the definite article “the”; He didn’t say, “I’m a way” or “one of the ways.”

This is why we preach the Gospel; it’s so that everybody may know that Jesus gave His life for them; mankind is no longer lost.

Now they can hear it, be saved, and be prepared for the soon return of the Lord, Jesus Christ. And we must keep at it until He comes!

Dear Father, thank you for the divine access you’ve granted us through our Lord Jesus Christ. As we travail in the spirit for lost souls all around the world, may they be receptive to salvation today. Let the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ shine in their hearts, resulting in salvation, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
