Why Jesus came into the world? (part 4)
"This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief." (1 Tim. 1:15)
What kind of world did Jesus Christ come into? What world did He die for? Did He die just for the “world of the elect?” Some would probably say yes. I believe the Bible teaches us that Jesus Christ died for all. 1 John 2:2 reads: “And He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” This does not mean that the whole world will be saved. Jesus died for everyone, but only those who repent and believe will be saved. He is the Savior of every man especially or particularly of those that believe (see 1 Tim. 4:10).
