The imperishable, unfading love of God is a reality, and you are invited to trust, accept, believe, embrace and experience it. The Gospel is misrepresented if all it does is to encourage some to boast in them self, “there faith, there works, a free ticket out of hell.”
The Bible presents Christ’s work as much wider than the salvation of a few individuals. It is about the restoration and renewal of a fallen creation because He loves them.
God’s Love is Big Enough to Save All
Luke 19:10: “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Will Jesus Christ really do what He said? He didn’t say He came to save some of the lost. He came to save the lost. And that is everybody!

John 3:17: “God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”
John 6:33: “For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” Notice He doesn’t offer life to the world–He give s it!
John 12:32: “And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” Jesus didn’t say that He would draw a select group.
Matthew 11:27: “All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and ANYONE to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”
1 John 2:2: “He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.”
1 John 3:8: “The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.” To end the separation!
Romans 5:18: “Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for ALL men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for ALL men.”
Romans 11:32: “For God has consigned ALL to disobedience, that he may have mercy on ALL.”
Revelation 5:13: “And I [John] heard EVERY creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and ALL that is in them, saying, `To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”
Romans 5:15: “If many [everyone] died through one man’s [Adam’s] trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift [salvation] by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many [everyone].”
Ephesians 1:9-10: God’s “purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time,” is to “unite ALL things in him [Christ], things in heaven and things on earth.”
Acts 3:21 (NLT): Jesus “must remain in heaven until the time for the final restoration of ALL things, as God promised long ago through the prophets.”
Romans 11:36: “For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.”
Romans 14:11: “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”
1 Corinthians 15:22: “As in Adam ALL die, so also in Christ shall ALL be made alive.”
2 Corinthians 5:19: “In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself.”

Philippians 2:10-11: “At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
1 Timothy 2:3-6: “This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.”
