GOD'S DESIRE

 
"I have been sent by the Lord Jesus Who appeared to you on the way here, to help you recover your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit." —Acts 9:17
 

Jesus wants all to be saved (1 Tm 2:4). He wants this so much that He:

  • hung on the cross, shed His blood, and died,
  • gives us the Holy Spirit (Mk 1:8),
  • founded the Church (Mt 16:18),
  • will knock a person to the ground with a flash of light and then audibly question them (Acts 9:3-4),
  • will strike a person blind to lead them to repentance (Acts 9:8),
  • calls Christians to risk their lives (see Acts 9:13ff) and even be martyred,
  • saves the worst of sinners as "an example" to show that He can save anyone (1 Tm 1:15-16),
  • gives us His flesh to eat and His blood to drink (Jn 6:55),
  • lives inside us (see Jn 17:23), and
  • insists on each of us proclaiming the gospel to all creation so that as many as possible believe and are saved (see 1 Cor 9:19).

On this threshold of the Great Jubilee and new millennium, live and die that all may be saved.

 
Prayer: Father, may I want all to be saved more than I want anything else in life.
Promise: "He who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood has life eternal and I will raise him up on the last day." —Jn 6:54
Praise: St. George gave his life as a martyr to witness for his faith in Jesus. "Happy now are the dead who die in the Lord!" (Rv 14:13)
