WHOSOEVER


John 3:16

"For God so love the world that he gave his one
and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall
not perish but have eternal life." (NIV)


"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should
not perish, but have everlasting life." (KJV)


Do we really understand that God fully loves the world,
all mankind, and not just a group of people who follow
certain laws and doctrines, believing they only are the
right way? When Christ died on the cross the dividing
wall was ripped from the top to the bottom. From that
moment on there were no separate groups, sects, or
denominations that are an elite group with the one
answer that excludes all others from the kingdom of
God. There is only one group, the Bride of Christ,
those who believe by faith in the Gospel of Jesus
Christ. The world is the harvest field. If we are
telling the Gospel to those we meet and not
preaching a doctrine or denominational belief, we
are a part of the body of Christ, His Church, His
Bride.


Heavenly Father, we know that it all comes back to the
cross where Jesus Christ gave His all. Help us to be
aware that our commission is to spread the Gospel to
the world, not our own beliefs and doctrines. We thank
you and praise you for your wonderful grace and mercy
through Jesus Christ our Lord and we pray this in His
precious name, Amen.

So true. Jesus alone is the way. People have a tendency to make all kinds of laws and condemn everyone else who does not agree with them. You said it very well.
Blessings,
Charlotte
