In His great wisdom, God sent Jesus to die for all people. So let’s not adopt a condescending attitude toward others whom He wants to save.

25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. 26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: 27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. 28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes. 29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. 30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: 31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. 32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.

     33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! 34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? 35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? 36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.(KJV)

1. O Christ, our true and only Light, 
Enlighten those who sit in night; 
Let those afar now hear Thy voice 
And in Thy fold with us rejoice. 

2. Fill with the radiance of Thy grace 
The souls now lost in error’s maze 
And all whom in their secret minds 
Some dark delusion haunts and blinds. 

3. Oh, gently call those gone astray 
That they may find the saving way! 
Let every conscience sore opprest 
In Thee find peace and heavenly rest. 

4. Oh, make the deaf to hear Thy Word 
And teach the dumb to speak, dear Lord, 
Who dare not yet the faith avow, 
Though secretly they hold it now. 

5. Shine on the darkened and the cold, 
Recall the wanderers to Thy fold, 
Unite all those who walk apart, 
Confirm the weak and doubting heart, 

6. So they with us may evermore 
Such grace with wondering thanks adore 
And endless praise to Thee be given 
By all Thy Church in earth and heaven.
