He is willing and able to Save !

The Leper Cleansed in Luke chapter 5

     “Christ was strong to save the whole world. He wanted all. He could not endure the thought that one should be lost. He wept at the grave of Lazarus, that He could not save every one whom Satan’s power had laid low in death. He had given Himself a ransom for many, even all who would avail themselves of the privilege of coming back to their loyalty to God. John, pointing to Him, had said, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world !”

     And in all this conflict with the powers of evil, there was ever before Christ the darkened shadow into which He Himself must enter. Ever before Him was the price which He must pay for the ransom of these souls. As He witnessed the sufferings of the human race, He knew that He must bear a greater pain, mingled with mockery; that He must suffer the greatest humiliation. When He raised Lazarus from the dead, He knew that for that life He must pay the ransom on the cross of Calvary. Every rescue made was to cause Him the deepest humiliation. He was to taste death for every man.
ref: Hebrews 2:9

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death (dying unto sin) He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is the devil. .And deliver them who through fear of (and) death were all there lifetime subject to bondage . . . !”     Hebrews 2:14-15, ref: Romans 6:10
