One Size Fits All. What a great idea, a product made in one size that works well for a wide variety of needs and situations: a shirt that anyone can wear; a watch that fits on everyone’s wrist; a hat that fits perfectly on any head; etc. Manufacturing these products is efficient. Marketing these products is exciting. Shopping is quick and easy, ‘No need to try this on, it fits everybody!’
Unfortunately, this ‘great idea’ typically doesn’t work out too well in real life. For the one size fits all shirt, there is a small number of people that this ‘one size’ fits pretty well; but for the majority of people, they are either swallowed up in it or they can hardly get it on because it is so tight.
But there is one ‘One Size Fits All’ that never disappoints, the Son of God Jesus Christ!
- Acts 10:34-35 Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. 35 But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.
Christ lived a sinless life, taught the truth about God, perfectly demonstrated the love of God, died on a cross, rose from the dead and ascended to Heaven to make a way to God for everyone that believes and confesses that Jesus is Lord and rose from the dead. He did all this to save us from God’s wrath against sin.
- Romans 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Here are just a few of the verses from the Word of God that clearly state Jesus is Savior for everyone who believes in Him and accepts His gift of salvation.
- Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
- Galatians 3:28-29 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
- Romans 3:22-23 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Your age, gender, nationality, social status, religious background, income, health, past, shortcomings, etc., etc. aren’t what separate you from God; it is your sin that does that. And the good news about Jesus is, He died to pay your sin debt once and for all. He died for all your sin (past, present and future).
- John 1:29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
- Colossians 2:13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,
Here is hard and wonderful truth, Jesus is the only way to a right relationship with God and eternal life in Heaven.
- John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
Jesus is the 'One Christ Fits All'
He perfectly satisfies the most important need of every person on the earth – the way to be in right relationship with the one and only true God of the universe.
Father God, please touch the heart of those who need salvation in Christ. Thank you for Jesus, the One and only one way to peace with You. I pray in the name of the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ. Amen.
