God wants us dead or alive many are walking around dead the living dead. But so loved us all that he sent his only begotten son that who ever believes on him want remain dead but live an abundant life right here on or in this earth. He wants saint and sinners many times the sinner is looked downed on but God looks up on them because if he draws them they have no choice but to come to him. He must draw, we can pray, preach, and fast but until he draws o one can come. God see's all we do for others to get them to have a real change of mind and heart but it is all up to the Almighty God who has all power. The song writer said these words Love Lifted Me. If we lift other up to God because we love and God is love he will draw men unto him.
