No Other Name (Acts 4:1-12)

Today, you can think anything is true, so long as you don’t say anything else is false; you can believe anything, as long as you don’t think other people should believe the same thing. Inclusivity is exclusive. And tolerance is intolerant.

You can say that Jesus will get you to heaven, but you cannot say that Jesus is the only way to heaven because other people have their own ideas, and who are you to say that they are wrong?

People have a problem with saying that Jesus is the way to God, the way to be saved. We see that today, and we see that in Acts 4:1-12. There, God tells us three things:

  1. Expect the Problem with Jesus’ Way (v1-4)
  2. Withstand the Probing of Jesus’ Followers (v5-9)
  3. Proclaim the Power of Jesus’ Name (v8-12)
