THE ONE AND ONLY

 
"For if by the offense of the one man all died, much more did the grace of God and the gracious gift of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound for all." —Romans 5:15
 

As sin and death entered the world through one man, Adam, so grace and salvation entered through the one Man, Jesus. "Through one man's disobedience all became sinners, so through one Man's obedience all shall become just" (Rm 5:19). Jesus alone took all the sins of all people of all times on Himself. "It was our infirmities that He bore, our sufferings that He endured" (Is 53:4). "He was pierced for our offenses, crushed for our sins" (Is 53:5). "He shall take away the sins of many, and win pardon for their offenses" (Is 53:12).

Jesus is the only One Who saved us, the only name by which we can be saved (Acts 4:12), the one and only Good Shepherd (Jn 10:16), the one Mediator (1 Tm 2:5), and the one and only begotten Son of God (Jn 3:16). Jesus is God (Jn 1:1, 18). Therefore, at His name "every knee must bend in the heavens, on the earth, and under the earth" (Phil 2:10).

"Worthy is the Lamb That was slain to receive power and riches, wisdom and strength, honor and glory and praise!" (Rv 5:12) "Everything in the universe cried aloud: 'To the One seated on the throne, and to the Lamb, be praise and honor, glory and might, forever and ever!' " (Rv 5:13)

 
Prayer: Jesus, may I know You personally as my Brother, Savior, Lord, and God.
Promise: "Be like men awaiting their master's return from a wedding, so that when he arrives and knocks, you will open for him without delay. It will go well with those servants whom the master finds wide-awake on his return." —Lk 12:36-37
Praise: St. John never felt unable to serve the Lord and orchestrated a work of God when he was seventy years old, leading the defense of Belgrade from raiders.
