“He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for US ALL, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things”” Romans 8:32
I love the above verse! JESUS DIED FOR THE WHOLE WORLD! He is not willing that any should perish. He said, “Whosoever will, may come and drink of the Water of Life”…His salvation is free to ALL!
There are verses in the Bible that talk about being chosen by God…but you must read them in the context in which they are written! God DID predestinate certain folks to come to Him, but it was done through foreknowledge. It says in Romans 8:29-31New King James Version (NKJV):
29 “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.”
So, what those verses say in plain English is this: God never said, who could and who couldn’t come to Him. In fact, He said, “Whosoever will, (anyone who wants to be saved, CAN be saved); but He KNEW who would and who wouldn’t…so He could choose according to His foreknowledge.
JESUS DIED FOR ALL OF HIS CREATION. IT’S YOUR CHOICE TO ACCEPT OR REJECT.
He’s standing with arms opened wide…waiting for you to come. Don’t ignore Him…He wants to save you!
