If God doesn’t care about non-Christians, why should I?Jan 17th, 2012 | By admin | Category: Questions You Ask (click for the full answer)
Oh, but He does.
If we don’t care about our neighbor, then we fail as Christians. Our job in the next age (which is reconciling the world of mankind back to God, when we reign as kings and priests with Jesus) depends on us passing our training in this age.
1Ti_4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
God has authored salvation for all of mankind (which is why Jesus died), but especially for those that believe. So what does that mean? It means the kingdom which all Christians pray for: “Thy Kingdom come Thy will be done on the earth….” is the hope of everyone who ever lived, but Jesus opened a New and Living way, for those that believe (and it isn’t a mere acknowledgement that he existed–but an believing into, a partnership, a grafting in) in Jesus–that is a heavenly hope.
As Kings we (The Christ: head and body members) help reign over all of mankind–all the way back to Adam. As priest, we heal, we restore fellowship and make Atonement, which breaks down to At-one-ment, we reconcile the world back to God, so that He will be All in All.
It is a glorious Plan that God has, and it includes everyone who as ever lived.
