“I AM no scholar, sir," said an old man; “I have taught myself the last fifteen years, and I delight to read the Bible. That word BELIEVE is a great word with me—it is everything to me; and, as far as I can make out, there is no other way of getting to the Lord Jesus. He says, Come unto Me,' and I thank God I am very happy in coming to Him by believing that He died for me, and that He washed all my sins away.”
As the old man thus spoke his venerable face brightened up with joy and peace in believing.
Have you, reader, joy and peace in believing? Are your sins washed away by the blood of Jesus? There is, indeed, salvation in no other, for there is "none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:1-2.) Therefore, look to, trust in, believe in Jesus, be reconciled to God now, for "He hath made Him [Christ] to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him." (2 Cor. 5:2121For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (2 Corinthians 5:21).) Glorious salvation!
