God’s desire is that everyone be saved (1 Tim.2:4) but that does not mean that all will be saved. Why not? Well, Paul wrote and said God also desires all come to a knowledge of the truth. Have you ever met someone who does not care about learning the truth?
So, how does God expect people to come to a knowledge of the truth? The answer is that God gave His disciples instructions to share the message of salvation to others (Matthew 28:16-20).
There are numerous opportunities to tell others the good news of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Sharing with others the word of God is like planting seed into the heart of another (Luke 8:4-15). It is important to understand that not everyone will accept the truth. But, that does not relieve us of the responsibility to share the message.
