Inclusive Exclusivism

I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also. There will be one flock, one Shepherd. John 10:16

Many listen to the voice of Jesus and in faith trust in Him. Others don’t. Jesus exclusively died and is raised for the inclusion of all. His sacrifice is made on behalf of the Christian, the Jew, the Muslim, the Hindu, the Buddhist, the Taoist, the Gnostic, the Atheist; everyone. Jesus shed His blood for all. Jesus did. No one else. There is no other to come calling us from darkness and death to light and life. Jesus alone does.

Jesus is the Son of God who appeared in the flesh, died, and is resurrected from the dead for you. Jesus alone calls into His “flock” all who would live. It’s not a matter of “believing really hard”; it’s a matter of Jesus grabbing hold of you. Jesus saves sinners, of whom I am the chief.

Jesus, have mercy and include me in your salvation. Amen.
