From the time of the early church till now, there has been a number of people who have come out to declare that they were the “Messiah or Christ” or “Saviour” of the world. This confirms what Jesus said to his disciples in Matthew 24:5, “that many will come in my name claiming to be Christ and will deceive many”. Other scholars, philosophers, religious leaders and adherents claim that nobody can declare that he or she is the only saviour of the world.

They argue that “the lamps are different, but the lights are the same”. Today, I want to announce to you that Jesus Christ is the ONLY Saviour of the world – this is the gospel. Hallelujah!!!

In John 14:6, Jesus Christ categorically and emphatically declared that “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. Oftentimes, young people think that Jesus said, “no one goes to the father” but that is not what Scripture said. Jesus said, “no one comes to the Father except through me”. This means that He (Jesus Christ) is with the Father and for that matter, you cannot come to the Father without him.

Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to the Father. The “lights” can never be the same because Christ is the ONLY light of the world (John 1:5; 8:12; 9:5). We have only one light and one lamp, who is our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, the ONLY Saviour of the world. God himself testified about his son Jesus Christ in John 5:10-12, that He has given us eternal life and this eternal life is in His Son Christ Jesus. Anyone who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son has no life.

This makes Jesus Christ the exclusive and only Saviour of the world. Having mere Bible knowledge, belonging to a particular denomination, being able to pray and trying to be a good person alone cannot save you. You need to give your life to Jesus today and allow him to be the Lord and saviour of your life, and you shall be saved.
