No Substitute

Acts 4:12- “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

 

A friend of mine is a substitute teacher.

I have used riced cauliflower as a substitute for potatoes. 

I often use a sugar substitute in my cooking.

“Off brands” of cologne don’t often have fragrances that “last,” but they cost far less.

Substitutes.

Not the “real thing,” but since they often serve the same function as the “original,” many of us find them acceptable.

However, the verse above tells us that there is no substitute for Jesus Christ. The Bible says that it is only through Him that we find salvation.

We cannot earn our way to heaven through “good works” or by following any other human being or god.

It’s not a matter of religious affiliation. 

It is relying on Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

There simply is no substitute!
