“And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.” (1 John 2:2, NKJV)
The Scope of Jesus’ atonement goes beyond our own personal salvation. Jesus cares about each individual’s personal salvation. The scripture in Luke 15 says that He leaves the 99 to save one. Jesus died for the sins of your closest loved ones and your greatest enemy. He also came to save your most intimate relationship and your mere acquaintances. He gave Himself for those who would trust in His name, and He has entrusted His people to take this message of redemption to the world. As you think of your own story of redemption, begin to direct your attention to those around you whom God may be wooing to Himself. He died for you and them. Pray God will give you ways you can share this good news with someone maybe today!
God Bless, Pastor Rick
