1 Timothy 1-3

"This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth."  I Timothy 2:3-4, NIV 

This passage contains one of the most comforting truths in all of Scripture: God wants all men to be saved!

While we know that all men will not be saved (after all, God still created Hell for the unfaithful) it is critical for us to understand that God wants us to be saved.

Now if God wants us to be saved, and we want to be saved, don't you think that salvation may not be as far out of reach as many people believe?

This is why we study: We want to come to a knowledge of the truth - and we can!

And, God wants us to be saved! Can you think of anything better than that?
