Good News for All

Acts 8:13   (KJV)   13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.

Simon was a sorcerer acknowledged by the people as someone great. But even this great man was captivated by the manifested or visible power of God. He believed; He got baptized. No one is beyond the reach of the Gospel. Leaders and followers, rich and poor, acts-8-13-gospel-for-allyoung and old, man and woman—people from different walks of life, spheres of existence, and status in society have been and are being saved through the Gospel. God woos them; He shows He’s real, He cares, He’s present, and He’s powerful through miraculous signs and wonders.

God’s love reaches all. Not all are saved, but all are loved, and He desires all of humanity to be saved and come to repentance. From the very first fall of the very first human beings, until now, our just yet absolutely loving God has continually and persistently reached out to us—rebellious humanity. Through the repeated cycles of sin, repentance, and restoration, our gracious and merciful Creator repeatedly and willingly corrected, disciplined, judged, forgave, and restored.

We’re never without a chance. There’s none of us exempt from His love and His salvation. We walk with confident knowledge and assurance that we’re loved. As an apt and natural response, we love Him too, and we desire to grow more passionately in love with Him. We also naturally love everyone; we don’t discriminate; the Lord never does; we ought not to. In love, we sow the seed of the Good News. Though not all soils or good, we get know which is which after we’ve sown the seed.
