All the World (Colossians 1:6)

The gospel is for the whole world. It is not bound by national, racial, ethnic or political boundaries. It was natural for the Jewish people to think the gospel was exclusive to them. To dispel this, Peter was given a vision revealing that the gospel was for all people (Acts 10:28-29, 34-35, 43; cf. Acts 10:9-43). Subsequently, Paul was sent as Christ's messenger to the non-Jewish world (Rom. 11:13). The blood of Christ will reconcile individuals to God from every tribe, language, people, and nation (Rev. 5:9).
