The apostle opens this part with “whosoever” it’s an offer open to all, no one is left out of the invitation whosoever includes all people. Each man, woman or youth has a choice available for their eternal destiny. Titus 2:11 “For the grace of God that beingeth salvation hath appeared to all men.” Belief is not just mere assent to God’s truth that’s not saving faith. James 2:19 Tells us that even the devils believe and tremble but are not saved. True belief leads to actions, if you were in a building and you believed it was on fire you would not stay but leave and encourage others to leave also. Every Christian loves God the Father, Jesus Christ and all other believers. We may differ on many things but on the main fundamentals we will agree. Love beareth all things and endures all things. The Christian life begins with love, is lived with love and ends in love when we finally see Him face to face. Remember it starts with God loving us when we were unlovable, so why don’t we also love the unlovable as Jesus did us? Love is the evidence of the true Believer. In 1st John 3:23 “And this is him commandment that we believe on His Son Jesus Christ and love one another as he gave us commandment.” When we love God and one in the right fellowship with Him loving others would be easy. Remember we did not and do not deserve His love and He gave Himself to take our penalty for sin all because of His love for us. “Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God; and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. Foe this is the love of God that we keep his commandments; and his commandments are not grievous.” 1st John 5:1-3
And Can It Be that I should Gain
And can it be that I should gain
An int’rest in the Savior’s blood?
Died He for me, who caused His pain?
For me, who Him to death pursued?
He left His Father’s throne above,
So free, so infinite His grace;
Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adam’s helpless race:
He left His Father’s throne above,
So free, so infinite His grace;
Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adam’s helpless race:
Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
