Awaken 21 - Day 4
Only Jesus can assure our salvation. Money cannot assure salvation. If you could buy the whole world you still could not purchase eternal life.
Fame cannot assure salvation. Even if millions know your name it is the name of Jesus that will give you acceptance into heaven. His name is like no other name, and all that matters is that He knows your name.
Intellect cannot assure salvation. Even the mind in all its complexities and processing power cannot solve the problem of sin.
Success cannot assure salvation. God defines success far differently than mankind does. Success in God's eyes is loving God with all your heart, mind, and soul and loving your neighbor as yourself.
Good works cannot assure salvation. Our greatest works on our best day are still like filthy rags when compared to the holiness of God. Only God is good. In Christ, and only in Christ, we find eternal salvation.
