How is God reaching out all of us?

  1. God reaching out us by putting the basic minimal capacity/ability in their heart to know about the true God
    • Rom 1:19 - because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.
    • NLT: Rom 1:19 - For the truth about God is known to them instinctively. God has put this knowledge in their hearts.
    • NLT: Ecc 3:11 - God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God's work from beginning to end.
    • Gen 3:22 - Then the Lord God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever"--
  2. God reaching out us by His general revelation through His Creation:
    • Rom 1:20a - For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead,
  3. God reaching out us by creating them geographically in a unique location to make them to seek the true God:
    • Acts 17:27a - 26 And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27 so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might
  4. God reaching out us by sending His Son Jesus Christ and actively knocking at our heart through His Holy Spirit and expecting us to respond:
    • John 3:16,18 - 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.18 He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
    • For this reason Jesus knocks at everyone hearts and expect them to respond:
      • Rev 3:20- Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
  5. God reaching out us by giving great commission to all who come out of this sinful life by believing in Him to reach out those who are living in the sinful life:
    • Matt 28:19a - 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.
    • So God sends missionaries to reach out all who are perishing:
      • Rom 10:14,15 - 13 For "whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." 14 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? 15 And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!"
