“Jesus only died for a select group of people”…NOT!

"For EVERYONE who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."  Romans 10:13

Another lie that Satan likes to give away is one that a lot of people actually believe: "Jesus only died for a select group of people."  Don't believe that lie.  Paul tells us in Romans 10:9-13, "If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.  As Scripture says, 'Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.'  For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile - the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."  Jesus didn't die for just a select group of people.  He died for mankind, EVERYONE!  However, there will be those who reject Jesus as Lord.  They won't confess with their mouths or believe with their hearts.  They will take on the punishment of their sins, which the Bible says is an eternity in hell where there will be eternal weeping and gnashing of teeth.  Jesus died for EVERYONE, but God gives us the choice to accept Jesus' life, death, and resurrection or the choice to reject it.  It doesn't change the fact that Jesus did, in fact, die for EVERYONE.  Even Peter, in Acts 2:17-21, quotes the prophet Joel.  Joel said, "In those last days, God says I will pour out my Spirit on all people."  He says, "EVERYONE who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."  I love those words all and everyone.  Don't believe the lies that Satan is giving away.  He wants to steal, kill, and destroy you and your family.  But remember, Jesus came so that you may have life and have it to the full.  Believe it!!!

    This reminds me of what you said a few Sundays back... " Even if I were the only person on this earth, I believe Jesus still would have died for me!" That is such a profound statement of Faith, one which I have adapted into my life. Thanks be to God for you and the shining example you are for people like me who yearn to be closer to God!
