All Means All

Bill Morel

I don’t know about you, but I get excited every time I think about the fact that Jesus’ death on the Cross was for ALL my sins. I don’t have to worry about laying in bed at night asking for forgiveness for everything I did that day… or else.

I have been in church my whole life and missed the power of that word for years. It seems silly to have to think about what “all” means as an adult because it’s such a simple word. But how often do we get sucked into the lies that some of our sins matter more than others;, or if I forget to ask for forgiveness for all of them before I fall asleep then I’m in trouble. These thoughts are lies and schemes of the enemy.

Scripture is clear that ALL have sinned, ALL have the opportunity to be saved, and Jesus died once for ALL. I think Romans does a great job of keeping it short and sweet: “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23 nasb). This is true, absent a relationship with Christ.

In Romans 10:11 Paul explains that “Everyone” who puts their faith in Christ will be saved.

Romans 6:10 says “For the death He died, He died to sin ONCE for ALL.

It’s the Same “All/Everyone” in Romans 3:23, 10:11, and 6:10. All of those verses are true. Therefore, Jesus died for ALL sins, and everyone who puts their faith in Christ will be saved. Hebrews 10:22 wraps this up nicely for us: “But when Christ had offered for ALL time a single sacrifice for sins he SAT down at the right hand of God.” It’s done folks – for all time! We can rest in the fact that over 2000 years ago Jesus died One time for ALL time.
