The scripture for today, July 25 (7/25), is Hebrews 7:25 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him [Jesus], because he always lives to intercede for them.”
Indeed, all of mankind is invited to come to God through Jesus. There are scriptures in the Bible about being chosen by God. But when you check the original Greek, it means you are being invited by God. If a company puts out a newspaper ad inviting people to be interviewed for hiring, the company can only choose those who accepted the invitation.
And something else stands out in that verse. Jesus is our intercessor, our mediator. Why would we want anyone lower than Jesus to be our intercessor when Jesus will do so himself?
How amazing! In one sentence we see that God the Father invites all of mankind to come to him to be saved completely, and that God the Son is our ever-present intercessor.
Such love. Such divine love. It is beyond comprehension. All we can do is fall to our knees and whisper, “Thank you.”

I was happy to discover this scripture I didn’t pay attention to it before! A good verse to bring people to Christ.
I FEEL BEING LOVED BY THE MUSLUM TO WHOM I TRY TO BRING TO CHRIST. I WISH iHAVE ADVICES TO PREACH THEM THE PROPER WAY. I KNOW GOD PUT LOVE IN THEIR HEART FOR ME SO THAT I CAN LEAD THEM TO HIM.
Would you help me also wih scripture related to the eagle character of CHRIST thinking of his power , mighty strengh that he wants us to receive as we enlarges our tent. The divine power compared to the eagle flying through the storm higher and higher to reach the highest mountain. I have to preach on it . GOD BE WITH YOU.
For help with converting Muslims, you need to know what they teach, even if the average Muslim does not know his own religion. Go to http://www.churchofchrist-cg-az.com/ISLAM and you will see comparisons of the Quran and Bible on the same subject, and how much they contrast. One difference is that Muslims are taught Allah created the world because he wanted slaves to worship him, whereas the Bible teaches Jehovah created the world because he wanted children to love.
