When we think about praying for, and sharing with, friends and family members who reject Jesus, we love passages like 2 Peter 3:9, "The Lord is . . . patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance." But this doesn't mean that everyone will eventually repent and accept Jesus Christ. Jesus plainly said in Matthew 7 that most people don't find the way to eternal life.
