Jesus Didn’t Just Die for Good People but for Everyone

Happy Tuesday Saints.

Romans 8:32 “HE WHO DID NOT SPARE HIS OWN SON, BUT GAVE HIM UP FOR US ALL…”

The Father loves us so much that He DID NOT SPARE HIS OWN SON from the pain and suffering of the cross. Jesus is the greatest demonstration of God’s love for mankind.

The Father GAVE HIM UP. His love for us cost Him HIS OWN SON. What a price to pay for us mere mortal sinners. As unworthy as we might feel, God thought it was worth giving Jesus up FOR US ALL.

Jesus didn’t die on the cross for a distinguished few. God sent Him because He “LOVED THE WORLD.”

We are all equal in the eyes of the Lord. No one is more special than the other or more worthy than someone else to be saved by the precious blood of Christ.

2Peter 3:9 says that the Lord is “NOT WILLING FOR ANY TO PERISH, BUT ALL TO COME TO REPENTANCE.”

He didn’t just die for good people, religious people, business people, doctors, or charity workers and the like – He died for EVERYONE. He died for the vilest, wickedest, cruellest, most violent, and nastiest people who ever lived. Jesus’ blood is just as good at cleansing the sins of gangsters as it is the sins of Saints.

Romans 3:23 says that “ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALL SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD.”

The Father gave Jesus up FOR US ALL so that WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM, WILL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.

How about you? Do you think some people are more worthy than others of God’s gift of salvation? Do you think some people are unworthy of God’s grace? Do you want someone you love and care for to be saved, but quietly want your enemies to perish?

Let God’s love enlarge your heart’s capacity to LOVE YOUR ENEMIES and pray for their salvation.

Have a great day. God bless and lots’a love,

Warren
