Acts 4:12 - Jesus is Sovereign and Supreme!

Acts 4:12; Jesus is Sovereign and Supreme!

Acts 4:12 (NCV)  Jesus is the only One who can save people. His 
name is the only power in the world that has been given to save 
people. We must be saved through him. 

John 14:6 (KJV)  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, 
and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me;  

Isa 43:11 (KJV)  I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is 
no saviour. 

Many people react negatively to the fact that there is no other 
name than that of Jesus to call on for salvation. Yet this is not 
something the church decided; it is the specific teaching of Jesus himself 
(John 14:6). If God designated Jesus to be the Savior of the world, no 
one else can be his equal. Christians are to be open-minded on many 
issues, but not on how we are saved from sin. No other religious teacher 
could die for our sins; no other religious teacher came to earth as 
God's only Son; no other religious teacher rose from the dead. Our 
focus should be on Jesus, whom God offered as the way to have an 
eternal relationship with himself. There is no other name or way!  [Life

In receiving the word, we receive Christ. And only those who 
thus receive His words are building upon Him. "Other foundation can 
no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ." 1 Corinthians 
3:11. "There is none other name under heaven, given among men, whereby 
we must be saved." Acts 4:12. Christ, the Word, the revelation of 
God,--the manifestation of His character, His law, His love, His life,--is 
the only foundation upon which we can build a character that will 
endure. . . . As you receive the word in faith, it will give you power 
to obey. As you give heed to the light you have, greater light will 
come. You are building on God's word, and your character will be built 
after the similitude of the character of Christ.  MB148-150 

Jesus is the only source of salvation, the only one able to 
forgive sins and provide new spiritual life. [Victor Bible Reader's 

We are undone if we do not take shelter in this name, and make 
it our refuge and strong tower; for we cannot be saved but by Jesus 
Christ, and, if we be not eternally saved, we are eternally undone (v. 
12): (Matthew Henry's Commentary) 

And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, 
and this life is in his Son.  He that hath the Son hath life; and he 
that hath not the Son of God hath not life.  These things have I 
written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may 
know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name 
of the Son of God. 1 John 5:11-13 (KJV)
