“All” Means All

October 17, 2018


“All” Means All

“All”  looks like a small word,  but it is so all-inclusive  —  dealing with every detail,  even things we’ve long forgotten about.     It becomes a very important word  to note  and treasure,  because it affects  our most basic  needs.

Since we live  in a sinful world,  we often see the word  “all”  used pretentiously.     Not all people  really mean  what they say  and often hold back  and renege  on their promises.     That leads us  to thinking  that  “all”  doesn’t really mean all.     But,  when God says  “all”,  that is exactly what He means.     In 1 John 1:7,  we read,

If  we walk  in the light  as He Himself is  in the light,  we have fellowship  with one another,  and the blood  of Jesus His Son  cleanses us  from all  sin.

“The blood  of Jesus His Son  cleanses us  from all  sin.”     Not just some — not just the little sins — not just the ones committed  on that day — but,  ALL sins.

So,  when Satan tempts us  to doubt and fear  that we are not really  totally forgiven,  we need to remember  this word  of God.     God is holy.     God cannot lie.     It is Satan  who is the liar  and the father  of lies.

Take courage.     Believe the Lord  who cannot lie.     All of His word  is truth  and He is always faithful.     He cannot help but be faithful — His love for us  on the cross  compels Him  to surely forgive  all our sins  and cleanse us  totally  from all sin.

Free  from the burden of guilt,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  You have proven Your faithfulness  and truthfulness  over and over  since the beginning of time.     Thank You  for letting Your love  and truth  comfort us again.”
