+DEV+ Salvation Only In Jesus

Salvation Only In Jesus

“Then the woman...came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. He said to her, daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering." Mark 5:33-34

Scripture Focus: Mark 5:25-34

In Victor Hugo's novel, “Les Misérables”, desperation drives Jean Valjean to steal bread for his starving family. The story follows him as he searches for, and finds, redemption.

The woman in our passage was also desperate, perhaps somewhat like Jean Valjean. She had suffered from a bleeding disease for 12 years. She had spent all her money but had found no cure. Jesus was her last hope. She believed He could heal her, even if she only touched the hem of His cloak. Jesus did heal her, but it wasn't her touch that brought healing; it was her faith in Him.

Today, people speak of many paths to heaven. Some live lives of deprivation to please God. Others practice good works to prove they are worthy of salvation. But the Bible tells us salvation is a gift God offers by grace - a gift received by faith (Eph 2:8-9).

Desperation over sin may drive us to look for answers in many places. But faith in Jesus Christ is the only answer. He purchased our salvation and offers it freely to a desperate, sin-sick world.

Insight: What do you trust in when you are desperate? Find healing in Jesus Christ alone for salvation from the penalty and power of sin.
