THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

One little girl, Kelli, always said her bedtime prayers.
As she did so, she would bless every family member, every friend, and every animal (current and past).

For several weeks, Kelli ended her nightly prayer by saying, "And all girls."
This closing statement soon became part of her nightly routine.

One evening, Dad’s curiosity got the best him.
He asked, "Kelli, why do you always add the part about all girls?"

Her response, "Because everybody always finish their prayers by saying 'All Men'!

The marvelous gift of eternal salvation, through Jesus Christ, is offered to ALL – to WHOSOEVER!!

God excludes NO ONE, and includes ALL in this “unspeakable gift!”

Yes, all are depraved in that all have the continual propensity to sin.
Yet, all have the possibility of being “washed, ... sanctified, ...justified, in the name of the Lord Jesus...” (1Cor. 6:11)

None are so “good” as to not NEED salvation! (Ps. 14:3)
Yet, none are so “bad” they cannot RECEIVE salvation! (John 3:16)

There is only ONE through Whom salvation is offered, that is Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12).
But ALL may receive Him! (John 1:12)

There is only ONE “door” that opens into God’s eternal forgiveness and happiness – Jesus Christ (John 10:9).
But “ANY” may enter that door! (John 10:9)

There is only ONE Who gave His life for the “ungodly.”
Jesus is the One through Whom God demonstrates His love for ALL mankind! (Rom. 10:6-8)

God’s predilection for election is plainly shown in the Bible for ALL people!! (2Pet. 3:9)

However, there is only one way to RECEIVE this eternal offer of God’s forgiveness.
And that is through SURRENDER to Jesus Christ as Lord!

Luke 9:23-24
23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

Matt 12:30
He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
KJV

Salvation through Jesus is offered to ALL!
Have you surrendered and received?

Love ya!
