Jesus is and was for everyone

August 3rd, 2008

One of the things I love about Jesus is that He is a Saviour for all people. In the Bible we see that He spent time with and reached out to people of all backgrounds and nationalities.

This is especially interesting because at the time Jesus walked the earth, many people only spent time with people from their own people group. They did not mix with others because in many cases they thought they were unclean.

Here are a few examples of the different groups of people Jesus spent time with.

  • The Sadducees (Matthew 22:23)
  • The Pharisees (Matthew 12:2-6)
  • The Herodians (Matthew 22:15-22)
  • The Romans (Luke 7:2)
  • The Zealots (Luke 6:15)
  • The Samaritans (John 4:39-42)

Combine this with Jesus spending time with other social outcasts of the day like tax collectors, prostitutes and lepers shows that Jesus was a Savior for all people. He didn’t discriminate. He just genuinely loved and cared for people, no matter who they were or what they had done.

If you don’t know Jesus personally I would encourage you to visit my “Peace with God” page right now. Jesus loves and accepts you no matter what background or nationality you are. He wants to be your Saviour today.
