The devotion for today is based on Acts 4:11-12, “This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."

You might be depressed by all the resistance against Christianity in the world.  If you are, it helps to read about the early church.  From the very beginning, it has been in conflict with those of the world.  Many people have been persecuted and died for their Christian faith.  It is the norm of faith.

The apostles did not hesitate about what they had to do.  They had to obey God over man.  They knew who Jesus was.  They knew that he was the only possibility of pleasing God.  They knew, and they stood up for their belief. We too, as we carry forward the Christian faith, need to stand up for the truth of Jesus.  He still is the only way to please God.  Without him, the world is lost.  With him, it is saved.  All praise to God.

Please pray with me the prayer for today: Lord Jesus, there is no other name under heaven than yours by which we can be saved.  Let this knowledge come alive in me.  Fill me up with the steadfast conviction that you alone are my salvation.  Let this conviction guide my thoughts, my feelings, desires, and my entire being so that others see you in me.  In Jesus’ name, I pray.  Amen.
