God’s desire has always been to reach all people with the truth of His love. When He called Abraham out of paganism He made a covenant with him. God said, “I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; … and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”(Genesis 12:1-3) This is stated a number of times afterward. So God began to work with the Hebrew people, and form them into the nations of Israel from whom the Christ would come. Jesus Christ is not only the perfect revelation of God to mankind. He is the atoning sacrifice for the sins of all men. What we don’t fully comprehend is how deeply sin has corrupted human nature and separated us from our God. God deeply loves and desires all mankind to be reconciled to Him. He has done everything necessary to bring that about, first through Israel, and ultimately through Jesus. The more we read and understand the God of Holy Scripture, the more we are drawn to yield ourselves to Him for cleansing and new life. This is God’s desire for all.
