the exclusivity of salvation being only in God

Jesus says it very plainly in John 14:6

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Peter says it plainly in Acts 4:12

“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Paul says it plainly in 1 Timothy 2:5

“For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”

And I am sure you knew these three passages, but have you ever read Psalm 62? Lately, Psalm 62 has been such a mighty blessing to me. I have read it everyday now for several days. Everything good, strong, lasting, meaningful, steady about me is because of God. Or better said, is not even me but God in me. Psalm 62 shows me this.

Notice the exclusivity of salvation belonging completely to God.

Verse 1 “For God alone…”

Verse 2 “He only… is my rock and my salvation”

Verse 5 “For God alone…”

Verse 6 “He only…”

Verse 8 “Trust in Him at all times…”

Is there any doubt or question at all who saves? Salvation is of the Lord! Hear the words of  “the great multitude that no one could number, from every nation” in Revelation 7:10 as they cried out:

Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne and to the Lamb!”
