"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." ESV
Do we truly understand the love our God has for all mankind? His love does not recognize certain laws, traditions, and denominations. When Christ died on the cross, all the dividing walls were ripped from top to bottom. From that moment on, there are no longer any elite groups that have privilege to the throne of grace. There is only one group. That is the Bride of Christ, those who believe by faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The world is a harvest field. If we try to win converts to our own brand of "religion," we fail to bring them to Christ. It is only through Him, that eternal life become ours.
Lord, we know that it all comes back to the cross, where You gave Your life for us. Help us to be aware of how we share this good news. Please check us in our hearts when we get off track, talking about doctrine and traditions. We praise You for Your precious grace and mercy You freely offered us through Your suffering, death, and resurrection. In Your name we pray, Amen.
