Consider the love of God
God's Love Is Universal

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

There is not one person in this world that God does not love to the point where He wants to see them saved. Whether a man is rich and famous or poor and miserable, if God had his way, He would that they all would come to repentance and be saved. God wants the intellectual humanist to come to the Salvation just as much as He wants the illiterate low-life to get saved. This blessed verse ought to get every Christian excited about the opportunity we have to proclaim to 'every creature' the good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ freely without any restraints. I heard someone say this, you can never give the Gospel to the wrong person, and I believe that to be a true statement.

A personal note: When I go soulwinning, I still get nervous knocking on doors. I constantly remind myself of this great verse. Somehow, I find such comfort and strength in this verse when I realize that God wants people saved, and His ordained way of accomplishing this task is through my obedience to His will.
