QAWhy does God want to save the world anyway?There are two major reasons
God wants to save the world:
Motivated by his mercy and
love, God gives abundant grace to his creation. The Bible says, “our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace” (2 Thess 2:16). The Bible says, “I [God] will
have mercy on whomever I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever
I have compassion” (Rom 9:15). God’s merciful salvation comes to
us because of the great love with which he loves us (Eph 2:4).
- God loves the world and
desires to have mercy on his creation (Jn 3:16; 1 Jn 4:10, 16;
Tit 3:5; Lk 1:78).
- God wants to manifest
his glory to those he has mercy on (Rom 9:23).
