Proverbs 18:10-The Name of Jesus; A Strong Tower (5)

 Salvation

In Acts 2:12, Apostle Peter made allusion to the inclusion of Salvation as one of the benefits of invoking the name of Jesus, as follows:  ”…for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved”.

You will recall that a slave girl once tormented Paul and Silas without a break until Paul, in anger, cast out the Demon manipulating her (Acts 16:16-18).  There and then, her owners framed them up, and they were later imprisoned unduly.  But God intervened, and set them free after a while (Acts 16:25-26).  And soon after, the keeper of the prison, supposing the prisoner’s had escaped, drew his sword and wanted to kill himself, but for the quick interjection of Paul that they were still around (Acts 16:28).  Therefore, in awe, the man said: ”Sirs, what must I do to be saved (Acts 16:30)”? And they replied ”Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household”.  And without more ado, he and his household were saved that day!

You too can be saved today, in the name of Jesus.  But being righteous is of utmost essence here (Proverb 18:10).  And being righteous, starts from being born again!  Are you born again? If you are; very good! In that case, you can go ahead and invoke the name of Jesus Christ as you wish henceforth, and you won’t have to struggle to be healed, delivered from Demons, have remission of your sin, etc. anymore.  However, if you are not born again yet, please invite Jesus Christ into your life right now.  Ask Him to take charge as your personal Lord and Saviour, and He will not snub you; this is a promise (John 6:37)!
