Acts 4:12 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Acts 4:12

”Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” 


Last night, I was praying about my upcoming trip, and I realized something: I’m gonna miss my guys here at the Jeremiah Tree!!! It’s amazing to me just how much we have grown together in the Lord and how much I consider them family now!!! One of the greatest gifts in my life is watching chains being broken off of those around me. Seeds getting planted and watered. Watching these men exchange condemnation for salvation, shame for hope, guilt for a clearer conscience, and death for life!!! Only Jesus could make this happen, and I’m so blessed He is taking me along for the ride!!! These men are growing daily, and it’s not because of me or anyone else, but rather the power, love, and forgiveness they are finding in Jesus!!! It’s such a blessing to watch and be a part of!!!


Yesterday, I was able to do my testimony again, and I love being able to share all that God has and is doing in my life! It’s so comforting to look back on the good times and the bad and know that Jesus was always right there and I can count on Him!!! Now, I’m blessed to be able to share that journey with these men, and I’m so thankful for that!!!


Jesus is alive and well and moving in our midst. If you don’t believe me, come to the Jeremiah Tree and hang out for a few; you will see what I mean! I say this to encourage you that you’re not too far gone, you’re not too dirty, your sins aren’t too great, and your salvation is not lost!!! Jesus saved a wretch like me, and He did it with a smile on His face and love in His eyes!!! Our beautiful Savior poured Himself out for all of us, and He did it out of love, not out of obligation. I say to you, surrender your old life to Christ and accept your new life in Him!!!


Be encouraged and be encouraging!!! I love you all, God bless, and glory to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!!!
