YOU ARE NOT CAST OUT

"All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." (John 6:37)

How will I apply this passage to my everyday life?

  1. This verse has always confused me a little. "all that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me" but, the current teaching about Jesus says "all who come to Me". The first statement implies that God has a chosen few to be given to Jesus. The second statement implies that we are responsible to choose independently.

    1. Thank you for your response Vickie! This scripture is Jesus talking about all the people that come to Him (to be saved) are given to Him by God. So, it is truly God who leads people to Jesus, and when we are come to Him (Jesus) God will not turn us away nor cast us out; because we are, after all, seeking Him.

      This verse is a good reminder of seeking the Lord and being found by Him. When you come to Jesus and want to learn more about Him, God will draw near to us and not cast us out. This is a reason to feel worthy and blessed. Oftentimes, I troubles and woes and even day to day circumstances carry us away from the Father, however we must draw closer to Him, and seek His love!

      You are right, it is a choice whether we come or not; but it is our prayer that when the Word and the Spirit of God wants us to draw near to Him, that we are flexible and make ourselves available and move our hearts towards Him!

    1. We hope and pray that you remember that God blots out and forgets and forgives our transgressions and sins; so let us continue to pray that we do not turn back to those things that keep us from Him. His mercy triumphs over judgement (James 2:13)!
