Dear friends,—I was moved to write these things to you in all those plantations. God, that made the world, and all things therein, giveth life and breath to all [Acts 17:25], and they all have their life and moving, and their being in him [Acts 17:28], he is the God of the spirits of all flesh [Num 16:22], and is no respecter of persons; but ‘whosoever feareth him and worketh righteousness, is accepted of him.’ [Acts 10:34f] And he hath made all nations of one blood to dwell upon the face of the earth [Acts 17:26], and his eyes are over all the works of his hands, and seeth every thing that is done under the whole heavens; and the ‘earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof.’ [Psa 24:1] And he causeth the rain to fall upon the just and upon the unjust, and also he causeth the sun to shine upon the just and the unjust [Mat 5:45]; and he commands to ‘love all men [1 Th 3:12],’ for Christ loved all, so that he ‘died for sinners. [Rom 5:8]’ And this is God's love to the world, in giving his son into the world; ‘that whosoever believeth in him should not perish.’ [John 3:16] And he doth ‘enlighten every man that cometh into the world,’ [John 1:9] that they might believe in the son. And the gospel is preached to every creature under heaven [Col 1:23]; which is the power that giveth liberty and freedom, and is glad tidings to every captivated creature [Isa 61:1] under the whole heavens. And the word of God is in the heart and mouth, to obey and do it, and not for them to ascend or descend for it; and this is the word of faith which was and is preached [Rom 10:6-8]. For Christ is given for a covenant to the people, and a light to the Gentiles [Isa 42:6], and to enlighten them, who is the <145> glory of Israel [Luke 2:32], and God's ‘salvation to the ends of the earth [Isa 49:6].’ And so ye are to have the mind of Christ [Gal 2:16], and to be merciful, as your heavenly Father is merciful [Luke 6:36].
