Salvation is for all men

That if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved (Romans 10:9)

Some people believe salvation is only for certain people; that God already numbered those that’ll be saved, and those reserved for eternal damnation; but that’s not truth. You might then ask, “So what did Jesus mean when He said, “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him…” (John 6:44). Doesn’t that mean the Father appoints some people to salvation, and separates some others unto destruction? No! Salvation is for all men. God’s desire is for ALL men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.

In John 3:16, the Bible didn’t say, “For God so loved some men…” ; rather it says “For God so loved the world…..” ; the world of men, ALL men, including women, boys and girls. The Father’s love is for the whole world; the world of sinners. So when Jesus said “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him….” (John 6:44), the right question to ask is, “Now does God draw men unto Himself?”

The answer is in the 45th verse of the same John 6 that says, “It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me” God draws men to Himself through His Word; through His message as encapsulated in the Gospel. When the Gospel is preached, those who hear, believe it, and endorse it by confessing the Lordship of Jesus Christ over their lives are drawn. So, the choice as to who receive salvation rests with every individual.

In Paul’s letter to Timothy, he said “…..God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:3-4). This is the very reason we herald the message of the Gospel. As you plan your vacation and visitation this Christmas time, have the Gospel in mind. Make it a memorable Christmas for those around you who are yet to receive salvation, letting them know it’s God’s desire for them to receive the best gift of all, this Christmas – Eternal Life!

The Bible says “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). You’re that preacher to those in your world; to bring them the glorious news of Christ’s salvation.


Thank You Dear Heavenly Father for the immense love You clearly demonstrated in sending Jesus to be the propitiation for my sins, thus making me a participator in the divine experience. I’m most grateful for this glorious privilege, in Jesus Christ’s Name! Amen!

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

  10. I wholeheartedly agree. The responsibility falls upon the individual. I likened our responsibility, in one of my blogs, to a big adoption agency. In this case God came here to adopt and decided that he had to have us all. At that he paid the price and said come. For our part we have to, in a sense, sign the paperwork agreeing to join him. God paid the price demonstrating how he feels, but we must accept his act of love. You have laid out a similar concept and I love it. Thanks for sharing.
