Acts 4:11, 12 "This is the Stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is becom the head of the corner (comes from the word 'kneel, knee') Neither is there salvation in any other for there is none other name (authority, character)under heaven given among men where by we must be saved."
This scripture is telling us that the ONLY way to be rescued/saved is to have the same posture and character of Jesus. No human can show us the way to being saved. We need to be in the same posture as Jesus was/is: on our knees in submission and humility, and having a character that is full of love for the Father.
It amazes me that God sent part of Himself here to earth for our Supreme Example. Jesus ALWAYS gave God all the credit. He always submitted to what God the Father desired and He did it while full of love for His Father. THAT is the way I am to live, too. On my knees and on my face. By living my life with the knees and face/character of Jesus, I KNOW I am saved because in this possition only God gets the glory! That is the exact reason God created us. To give God all the praise and glory for this free life He gave us. Jesus showed us how!
Jesus, thank You for showing us the posture I am to live in; always loving our Father and always submitting to Him. I want YOUR knees, Lord and I desire Your face!
