He died for all… 2 Corinthians 5:15, KJV

The town of Chepstow in South Wales is one of the gateway towns from the country’s border with England. A stroll through it while on holiday caught my imagination when I saw a hotel called “The Five Alls.” The facade of the building was bedecked  with five life-size figures with inscriptions as follows: A soldier with the inscription “I fight all;” a bishop with “I pray for all;” a king, “I rule all;” a lawyer, “I plead for all;” and a banker, “I pay all.” What an opportunity to preach a message concerning Christ in that town by adding two other themes represented in His blessed person: “I love all” and “I died for all.” —B. Powlesland

God loved the world of sinners lost and ruined by the fall,
Salvation full, at highest cost, He offers free to all. —Stockton
