Nothing will silence the people of God more than a loss of conviction concerning the good news of Jesus. If we lose confidence in the Gospel’s truth, relevance, and power, warns Alistair Begg, we will inevitably lose our fervor for evangelism. When contemporary notions such as relativism or pluralism try to divert us from the truth, we must instead stand firm in the fact that there is no name other than Jesus by which we can be saved.
8Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers of the people and elders, 9if we are being examined today concerning a good deed done to a crippled man, by what means this man has been healed, 10let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by him this man is standing before you well. 11This Jesus1 is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone.2 12And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men3 by which we must be saved.”
