(Examine Your Faith: What Do You Really Believe?)

TO THE BIBLE: Acts 4:12 AMPC
“And there is salvation in and through no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by and in which we must be saved.”

LET’S TALK
It’s important for you as a Christian to sanctify your believing, to examine your faith and be sure you’ve not believed in the wrong thoughts or in the assumptions of the world.

There’re people who say, for example, “I know I believe in Jesus Christ, but He’s not the only messiah.” No true believer in Jesus Christ will assume such a position.

As a true Christian, you must believe that salvation is by no other except Jesus Christ. You can’t believe in Jesus Christ, and believe there’s also some other way for salvation; that’s unacceptable.

Any professing Christian, who believes there’s another way to God besides Jesus Christ is confused and in error.

The Lord Jesus said, “…I am the way, and the truth, and the life, no one does come unto the Father, if not through me” (John 14:6).

Notice, He didn’t say, “I am a way” or “one of the ways”; rather, in very definite and emphatic words, He said, “I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE!”

Jesus Christ is “…declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead” (Romans 1:4). No one else bears this testimony, except the Lord Jesus.

This is what we believe in Christianity: the Lord Jesus is the Saviour of the world, the Lord of heaven and earth, and the one that has brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel.

You must have times of personal reflection, when you review your faith and convictions, and ask yourself, “What have I really believed about the Lord Jesus Christ?” Be sure that your believing is consistent with the revealed truth of God’s Word.
