Acts 4:12

Acts 4_12.jpg

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

Dear Jesus, 

I often think how happy I would be to win the lottery.  But I forget that I have won a much bigger lottery with you.  In the lottery only one number wins.  In salvation only one name saves.  You have given me that name.  In the lottery one has to have the winning number as his own.  I have you as my own.  In the lottery you must trust the number enough to turn in your ticket and receive your prize.  In salvation I must trust you enough to let go of my self.  You have given me that faith.  In the lottery a person gets a boat load of money.  In salvation a person gets a ship load of blessings. Oh how happy I can be today to have won the heavenly lottery.  No other name saves and I have the one that does.  I will live without complaining today.  I will celebrate my salvation by smiling through every circumstance.  I am a winner in you.  

Amen

In Christ we have the only thing that can bring lasting joy.
