Jesus Savior of All

by randy on October 4th, 2008

1 Tim 4:10 “For to this end we toil and strive,because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.”

This is a cool verse and it’s no challenge to the doctrines of grace. Think about it.. How can Jesus be the savior of all people when all people aren’t “SAVED”? If there was only one kind of salvation then this verse would mean nobody goes to Hell.

The answer is simple.

WHAT IF Jesus was never on the agenda to die on the cross or save anyone? Would God allow the earth to continue on if there was no hope for anyone to be saved? Would there be life after the fall?

How could there? There would be no patience (2 Peter 3:9) because there would be no promise! If there was no promise; it would mean instant WRATH and the end of the human race.

If Jesus was never on the agenda to die; nobody would experience the grace of life. Whether believer or non-believer the fact that you are alive and can enjoy life can be attributed to what Christ did on the cross.

Jesus is the savior of all men in the sense that if Jesus didn’t die on the cross; nobody would ever live. Those who do not believe benefit in this life from the cross whether they recognize it or not.

Jesus IS the Savior of all people, ESPECIALLY of those who believe.
