Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
2 John 1:4
It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us.
It is assumed that John the Apostle wrote this letter to the Church as a whole at that time. It is also believed that the “lady” he addressed the letter to in verse 1 is a metaphor for the Church. John was thankful that “SOME” of the people in that day were following Jesus.
Most “Followers Of Jesus” know the passage in 2 Peter 3:9 that says God doesn’t want anyone on the planet to go to hell. At the same time, all of us on the planet were given a “free will” at birth. Because of that “free will,” any of us can choose to reject the loving grace of our Lord. That’s why, no matter how desperate we may be to win the entire planet for Jesus, in the end only “SOME” will actually yield their lives to Jesus. “SOME,” but not ALL. I’ve known this from the time I was a young believer, however it has never deterred me from believing that ALL may come to Christ. Like our Lord and Savior Jesus we will always reach for ALL, knowing that in the end only “SOME” will be saved.
I’m believing that as I go into the marketplace today I will find my ALL saying YES to Jesus. Help me! Amen
