Did you know it all belongs to Jesus?

I am listening to a four part sermon series by Brian Bloye on the book of Ruth and some things he said connected the dots for me about evangelism today. That is that Jesus paid for everyone's redemption. God knows who is going to say no thanks and that is for God to be concerned with, not us. From our vantage point, everyone can be saved. The price was paid for everyone to get in. Since some might say no, it's like God overpaid, which is the way God does things- he over does things. God isn't merely enough, but too much; as an evangelist from Louisiana puts it. So I think that when we pray for those who don't know Jesus to be redeemed by Him, we can have the boldness to call for them, as having already been paid for. We are asking for something that has already been bought.
