No other name has ever won such diverse allegiance—Paul and Tolstoi, Roosevelt and St. Francis, Grenfell and Schweitzer. No other voice speaks to every man “in his own tongue.” Well might that little Chinese girl confess, “I have known Him all my life, and one day I learned His name.” If other nations refuse Him at our hands, it is not because He lacks authority but because our hands have not been clean. Despite our unclean hands, His purity shines through, and His gospel now is read in over three hundred different tongues.
Gospel means “good news” and refers to the salvation offered through Christ’s death. Gospel is an old English contraction of two words “the God spell.” It refers to those who have been called by the gospel (1 Thessalonians 2:14), have come under the power of the gospel (Romans 1:16), and who pattern their lives after the gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1; Philippians 1:27), Each should ask, “How much am I under God’s spell?”
Jesus. Truly, a name we love to hear!
“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12
