“It’s all really the same, isn’t it?” “Sure, there are lots of different messages in our world, but ultimately they all end up in the same place, right?” That’s the message we hear so often today. “It doesn’t matter what you believe, as long as you believe something, right?”
Wrong! Not every message is the same. Not even close! Listen to Paul in the Bible: “Even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!” (Galatians 1:8). There is only one message that saves. There is only one way to salvation. It’s the message of Jesus Christ and how he died for our sins and rose to give us eternal life. Salvation comes through faith in Jesus. There is no other gospel!
So what message are you following? Listen closely. Evaluate what you’re hearing. There is nothing else that compares with Jesus’ love for you. There is no one else who has done what Jesus has done for you. There is no other message that promises free forgiveness like God does. There is nothing that gives peace like knowing God’s gift of eternal life through Jesus. That’s the gospel—the good news. This is urgent! Even if an angel preaches something different to you, don’t believe him! Salvation comes from Jesus. There is no other gospel!
