60IN60 Day 13 - Sat May 16

It's Day 13 and we're in 2 Thessalonians 3.

Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 13 - It can be easy to get tired of trying to pursue the right things in our lives. We can get lazy or sidetracked by sin. We need to persevere in doing what is right.

If you want to read the chapter online, here's a link.

Your Questions and Comments:
- "A question, does everyone get the chance to believe in Jesus? I have always heard that every soul gets at least one prompt to follow Jesus." - Let me answer this with a few different thoughts.  1. Most people get the chance to hear about Jesus and make a decision.  Most, in fact, get multiple opportunities. 2. A second thing that has to be acknowledged is that not everyone gets the opportunity to hear about Jesus.  There have been people in history (for example, American Indians 1,000 years ago) and there are people today (there are still a number of "unreached people groups") who have not heard about Jesus. 3. How does God judge those who have never heard of Jesus?  There are two main camps.  In camp one, some Christians believe that it's just too bad that you didn't hear, but you're lost.  Calvinists are more likely to believe this.  In camp two, some Christians look to Romans 2:12-16.  There Paul talks about those "who sin apart from the law" - in other words, those who never heard of God's revelation.  Paul says that those in that situation will be judged apart from the law.  I take that to mean that God judges you according to what you do know about Him.  So if I am someone who never heard about the Bible, God will judge me based on what I do know about Him.  Obviously, it is a huge advantage to have heard the story of God because the story of Jesus is such an incredible one.
