“How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?” – Romans 10:14
The world of mankind is one polluted and dark place where men are constantly getting their hands dirty and wallowing in blood; a place that seems to be without hope and given up by God.
But because of His Infinite and Compassionate love, God has not given up on mankind. Instead, each and every day He puts up with the sins of men. Why? That they may have ample opportunity to obtain eternal life, a Precious and Priceless Gift of Grace.
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” – II Peter 3:9
In giving the world this great gift, it demonstrated the highest expression of love of which we can conceive, for it shows the height and depth of the love of our creator in that he was willing to sacrifice His only child for the redemption of mankind. This is True Love, a love that is beyond the meaning of man’s interpretation of love.
It is not because of anything we did to earn this kind of gift - we didn’t deserve it, but He did it anyway. And because He did, we are Free Today!
My fellow Christian brothers and sisters wherever you are; what the world needs now is the same opportunity you and I had to receive this “Precious and Priceless Gift of Grace.” But how can they know without someone willing to tell them?
