GOD WANTS ALL PEOPLE TO BE SAVED …
When Jesus looks at people, He doesn’t just see flesh and blood. He doesn’t see black faces, white faces, red faces, yellow faces. He sees people who are potential champions. He sees people who are scattered without direction in their life. And yet, He loves them so much that the door of salvation was opened to every person.
Thank God, Jesus has opened the door of salvation that no one can shut—unless the person himself refuses to walk through that open door by not receiving Jesus Christ as his Saviour. Whosoever will may come through this door of salvation! Each individual person must choose for himself whether he will enter into the blessings and benefits that salvation provides for him.
AND TO COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH …
The truth is important to God. And because it is important to God, it should be important to us. When we talk about the truth, what are we talking about? Well, we are talking about the truths of God and not the facts of man.
Now, here’s what I mean. A man I know was tricked and betrayed. When the problem was uncovered, he wanted to know all the details of the situation. He searched and talked and acted like an amateur detective for several months. He just had to know all of the details of his past problem.
When he was asked why he had to find out all the ugly details, he responded by using a scripture verse. He said, “I can’t forgive until I find out all the facts. I have to know the truth. After all, Jesus said ‘you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.'”
SO YOU MAY HAVE LIFE, AND HAVE IT TO THE FULL.
It is not God’s will that you put up with anything that robs you of life to the full. He is a good God; He wants you to enjoy your life! He wants you to be free to become the person that He created you to be.
He doesn’t want you crippled in your emotions, tormented in your mind, or sick in your body. He doesn’t want you bound by insecurity, fear, or sin. He wants you to be free to fulfill the assignment that He has for you to complete and live the abundant life.
