I loved that!
Remembering this has got me thinking about some of the other statements in the Bible that are for “whoever” or “everyone” or “anyone”.
I Cor. 8:3 “Anyone who loves God is known by God.”
Romans 10:4 “Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.”
For awhile I was noticing a lot of small words that make a big impact, like “if” or “but”. Now I am sensitive to the words “any” and “every”. Wow, what a revelation. So often people think of Christ as being limiting, confining…yet, as I read the Bible with an eye for these words I am seeing how big and broad God’s love is for us. He has desires for everyone and anyone. He wants to help us with anything and everything. He is everywhere we go. We cannot go anywhere to hide from Him. He is available anytime and every time we need Him.
I too am a whosoever; with that one step of faith I have also become the recipient of every good thing that the Lord promises to anyone who believes.
