John 6:37(AMP); All whom My Father gives (entrusts) to Me will come to Me; and the one who comes to Me I will most certainly not cast out [I will never, no never, reject one of them who comes to Me].
Often times, our theme scripture is used only in the context of people that are coming to salvation and giving their lives to Christ.
While this is true, there is more to it than that. It also applies to those of the household of faith.
When a man makes a mistake and comes to the Lord in humility and repentance, God never rejects or casts them away.
If this is how God treats us, we also ought to extend the same treatment to fellow believers.
There are Christians who are utterly intolerant of other people’s struggles and mistakes.
I know a man of God who sent away a girl from the church because she got pregnant out of wedlock. He said he was teaching her. What kind of message does that send? That those who get pregnant but abort are more worthy?
God does not cast away His own.
He does not teach us by rejecting us. His arms are wide open to receive you regardless of your mistake. Fall into the arms of love and let Him deal with you.
His name be praised!
FURTHER STUDY: Hebrews 13:5, Hebrews 4:16
God does not cast away His own. His arms are wide open to receive you regardless of your mistake. Fall into the arms of love and let Him deal with you.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank you for this truth. Thank you for your endless mercy that is available to me. I look to that mercy as my source of strength and my hope for tomorrow. I stand because of your mercy. That mercy is the lifter of my head; the comfort that I am your own for the rest of my days.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
