Salvation is for Everyone

We should never try to second-guess God about who he loves and who he accepts.
I’ve travelled a fair bit, and I’ve realised that I look pretty international. In many places, I’ve been to I can conceivably pass as a local, for example in India, and even in Egypt where they called me “the Sheik.” And I’ve discovered that when you’re seen as a local, you get treated better!
It’s natural for religious people to think that God approves of people who are just like them. But when Jesus came to shatter that idea. He said to the religious types that the people who thought they were in, would be left out, and the people they thought were left out, were invited in.
We should never try to second-guess God about who he loves and who he accepts. When you’ve understood the Gospel you’ll never try to limit salvation to people just like you. Remember: Salvation is for everyone who simply trusts in Jesus, whoever you may be.
