100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #33 | with Daniel Whyte III
TEXT — Isaiah 53:6: “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
Words are important. They can be used for good or for bad. We use them to communicate our thoughts, our feelings, and our desires. We could not function in this world without words. Bestselling author, Roy Williams, said “Words start wars and end them, create love and choke it, bring us to laughter and joy and tears. Words cause men and women to willingly risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. Our world, as we know it, revolves on the power of words.”
There are many important words in the Bible. God used words to communicate his loving plans and desires for His creation. Today, I want to draw your attention to one little word that carries a great deal of importance. That word is the word “all”. It occurs over 4,600 times in the English Bible. The word “all” means: “each, every, the whole, all things, or everything.”
Allow me to share with you four truths from the Bible that this little word communicates:
1. First of all, the Bible tells us that all have sinned.
2. Secondly, Jesus Christ paid for the sins of all the world.
3. Thirdly, the Bible lets us know that all people can be saved.
4. Fourth, today, the Bible tells us that God invites all people to be saved.
