S.A.N.S. Episode 216: Only One

Jacksonville, Florida is known for its beaches and host sight for the annual backyard rivalry of the Georgia/Florida college football game. However, today’s song comes from Yellowcard who formed their band in 1997 in Jacksonville. During the Coronavirus pandemic, I spent my lunches at my desk, looking for wholesome music new to me. One of those searches led me to the song Only One by Yellowcard.

And there is salvation in and through no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by and in which we must be saved, Acts 4:12.

Based upon the lyrics from lead singer Ben Dobson and attached video, Only One appears to me a love song. Yet, for me, I was drawn to the words of a first century doctor in the passage above. While physical love can be amazing, spiritual love lasts for eternity. Although emotions rise and fall based upon your feelings, Jesus is the only one who promises eternal salvation.
