“. . .and him that comes to Me I will in no wise cast out.”

John 6:37b

We need never fear if He’ll grow weary of us or stop loving us.

No more precious words have ever been said than those found in today’s Manna:  “And him that comes to Me I will in no wise cast out.”  What does this mean to you, Pilgrim?  Or, what should it mean to any “who come to Him”?

First, we should examine this “coming to Him.”

Jesus Himself said “No man can come to Me, except the Father Who has sent Me draw (Grk. ‘helkuo’—‘to take for one’s self, prefer, choose, etc.’) Him. . .” (Jn. 6:44a).  Thus, it’s clear our “coming to Him” is at the initiative and invitation of the Father; yet, we also read that “God so loved the world that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (Jn. 3:16).  And, when we couple that with “Whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved” (Rom. 10:13), we realize (as the song says), “Whosoever surely meaneth me.”  Hallelujah!!

Thus, it’s clear Jesus’ invitation to “Come unto Me all you that labor and are heavy-laden” (Mt. 11:28a) means everyone.  And, when they do—in simple, childlike faith and repentance—He has promised “in no wise cast out.”  Or, another way to say it is “I will not, not cast out” or “I will never, never cast (Grk. ‘ekballo’—‘eject, throw away, reject, expel, leave behind, drive away, etc.’) out.”

But, what about those times we sin after we’re born from above?

Do not fear, weary one:  “We have an Advocate before the Father” (I Jn. 2:1), Who pleads our case, points to His Blood and says “I will purge you with hyssop and you shall be clean; I will wash you and you shall be whiter than snow” (Ps. 51:7; Is. 1:18).

Or, what about those times when we’ve backslidden and sorely grieved His Holy Heart?

Again, hear His Word:  “I will heal their backsliding; I will love them freely—for My anger is turned away from him” (Hos. 14:4).  Truly, it is “His goodness that leads us to repentance” (Rom. 2:4b).

Or, during our times of temptation or fiery trials when our flesh is strong and our faith is weak?  “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” (Acts 2:37b).

Once again, do not fear, dear Pilgrim—for “God is faithful and will not permit you to be tempted above that which you are able, but will with the temptation/trial also make a way of escape that you may be able to bear (Grk. ‘hupophero’—‘to bear from underneath, stay under the load, endure hardship, carry on, etc.’) it” (I Cor. 10:13b).

Come now, all you, His sheep, so prone to wander.  Come to the Savior’s waiting arms.  Let Him gather you in and rest in the assurance that He will never cast you away like some worn out garment or yesterday’s newspaper.  No, He will continue “holding you securely in His nail-scarred Hand from which no one can pluck you” (Jn. 10:29).  Rest now in His “Adoption-Arms of assurance,” knowing “He will never leave you or forsake you” (Heb. 13:5b).
