Jesus said in John 12:32, If I be lifted up I will draw all men unto me. We know that physically Jesus was talking about the fact that He would be lifted up on a cross. The result of that would be that all men and women everywhere could now come to God. Because He shed His blood on the cross, this paid the penalty for my sins. When I receive Him as my Savior, my sins are forgiven, and I become a child of God.
We now have the responsibility to lift up Jesus. It’s not my job to save people, but it is my job to point people to Jesus. We need to make sure we don’t lift up our selves, our church, our denomination, our works, or our rules. We need to present Jesus and the work that He did on the cross in a clear, logical, intelligent, passionate way. Then Jesus will draw them, we don’t have to draw them.
