God desires all people to be saved

“This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:3-4 (ESV)

There it is again: all people.

God is not racist or sexist. His preference is not for a particular nationality or ethnic group.

His desire is for all people to be saved.

Because we are drowning in a sea of sin, often oblivious to the peril we’re in.

Yet He is a God of second chances.

Extending His hand out to each and every one of us in the hope that we will grasp His lifeline of grace.

To “know the truth” is to understand this: that Christ Jesus is the “lifeline”, dieing for our sins, “once for all”. (Romans 6:10)

To save us. All of us.

Thanks be to God.


prayer : thank you Lord that your love and grace and mercy knows no limits

action : pray specifically for others that they would be saved
