Why Isn't Everyone A Christian?
Not everyone wants to be a Christian, and God doesn't force people to follow Jesus. Some people don't just reject Christ, they also act mean to Christians. That's because they don't understand the love that God has for them. We should try to tell these people about God's love for them.
[Jesus is praying] "And now I am coming to you. I have told them many things while I was with them. They should be filled with my joy. I have given them your commands. And the world hates them. This is because they don't belong in the world, just as I don't. I'm not asking you to take them out of the world. I am asking that you keep them from the evil one. They are not part of this world any more than I am." (John 17:13-16)
Matthew 7:14; John 15:9
Note to Parents
You can pray with your child for others to become Christians.
