This morning, I was reading some verses in 1 John, and I want to share them here.
And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world. -2:2
In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. . . . And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. — 4:10, 11, 14
If I really believe this, then I am challenged to act like I believe it. I do believe that Jesus is the Savior of the world; I believe He is the propitiation for the sins of the whole world. I believe that every person in the world should know that Jesus offers them salvation. I believe everyone in the world should have the opportunity to either accept or reject Christ.
I believe God loved the whole world so much that He sent His Son that anyone and everyone who believes can live forever with Him. So I want the whole world to know of that great love and that great offer.
This is how I want to spend my life — working to get this good news to the whole world.
