On the cross, Jesus, the Lamb of God willingly laid down His life for every person He ever created. He demonstrated His love in the most powerful way, making a way for us to have full adoption as God’s children. God shows no favoritism based on race or anything else. God is love, and extends the offer of His grace to every person on this spinning globe. It’s up to each person to accept or reject His loving gift. John 17 shows how Jesus prayed for those who would eventually believe and follow Him. He prayed that we might be one as He and the Father are one. Without unity we cannot fulfill our purpose on this earth. Division over non-essential things damages our mission and harms everyone. Love one another as Christ loved us, fervently from the heart. God values each life. In this fallen world, where there is a culture of death and division, He offers another way, a genuine hope, and He IS the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. No one comes to the Father except through Him. His loving arms were extended on the cross. His resurrection power is available to Hs children. He can help you through whatever trials you may be facing. He is the lifter of our heads, our refuge and strength. Underneath are the everlasting arms.
