In our world, numbers gauge success, yet with God one matters. Your one soul mattered so much to God that He sent His one and only Son (John 3:16).
There is one God and one Savior (1 Corinthians 8:6). Jesus is the one who will save (1 John 4:14, Romans 10:13). Jesus is the One Door, the one Way to salvation (John 10:9, John 14:6). The one who comes to Jesus will be welcomed, find rest, and eternal life (John 6:37, Matthew 11:28, John 17:3).
God looks for the one. He looks for the one to save – the one lost sheep (Luke 15:4), the one lost coin (Luke 15:8-10), the one Samaritan woman (John 4:5-42), the one demon possessed man (Mark 5:1-20), the one hurting in need of healing (John 5:1-9), the one in need of sight (Mark 10:46-52), and the needs of the many ones are met in miraculous ways (Matthew 11:5).
God looks for ones who fear Him, who are faithful to Him, who are righteous, who walk with Him and will minister in His name (Psalm 33:18, Psalm 101:6, Psalm 34:15). The eyes of the Lord move throughout the earth to find the ones whose hearts are completely His that He may strongly support them (2 Chronicles 16:9).
Work for The One. Be one who will keep focus on our one Savior and spread the good news of the love of the One Savior who eternally saves.
Jesus said, “I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved … I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out. Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest”” (John 10:9, NASB, John 14:6, NASB, John 6:37, NASB, Matthew 11:28).
“Whoever confesses and acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. We have come to know [by personal observation and experience], and have believed [with deep, consistent faith] the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides continually in him. In this [union and fellowship with Him], love is completed and perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him]…” (1 John 4:15-17, AMP).
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words], baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19, AMP).
“Study and do your best to present yourself to God approved, a workman [tested by trial] who has no reason to be ashamed, accurately handling and skillfully teaching the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15, AMP).
“For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]” (Ephesians 2:10, AMP).
Heavenly Father, thank You for the forgiveness, grace, and mercy of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Thank You that You are a loving God who saves. Thank You for Your salvation. Thank You that every one matters. Help me to walk in Your ways, read Your word, and share the good news of Your one and only precious Son, Jesus Christ. who is the Savior of the world.
