“There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12, NLT)

Peter’s declaration to a skeptical — if not hostile — audience is not made with malice. It is made as a faithful testimony to the scriptures, and to the evidence of God’s work in our time.

Each day, we have an opportunity akin to Peter and John’s, as recorded in today’s reading. If we are diligent students of the holy scriptures, and are vigilant for His presence, we will have numerous occasions to give faithful testimony.

People may dispute the former, and discount the latter; but our role as faithful witnesses remains, nevertheless.  – Luther
