All through Scripture we read of God's intention to save everyone in the world. Some days, after trying my best to draw a person towards salvation, I conclude, "Why Lord, didn't you just take us all for your own?" It's a naive question in that it ignores the demonstration of the love of God for us all. His plan for us leaves the relationship to be our choice. He has already, through Christ revealed His love for all. The rest is based upon our conscious decision to love Him.
So while I despair at those who reject His love, I do so knowing their ability to do so comes by the grace of God. The grace of God is always present. Please, Lord, make us even better at shining and sharing so more will see the light and know that you love them. Hallelujah!
2 John 1:3 (NIV)
3 Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father's Son, will be with us in truth and love.
