God has expressed His eternal love to each one of us. He sent His Son to die for our sins and He has brought Him to the earth so that we might see what God is truly like. He also made it abundantly clear that He has chosen only one way that He might be able to save us. It is a plan that He formulated before time existed. He chose to save the descendants of Adam, by a work of salvation that He alone would accomplish. He did this so that none of us could ever boast, or take credit for what God has done.
Salvation is a free gift that God has offered to every person who will simply believe what He has said. If we think that we can make a way of our own that will bring us to God, we are wrong. There is only one, perfect, and complete plan of salvation in which all people of the earth can find and know the One True and Living God.
Isaiah writes that the Messiah will be the only Savior available to all mankind.

Acts 4:10-12 “let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. This is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’ Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus.
