“All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:37-40)
Why are these verses some of my favorite verses in the Bible? Why do they give me comfort, peace, and hope? I can tell you why these verses have meant so much to me, why they brought me peace when I was lacking peace in my life, why they bring me joy, why they are the most inspiring Bible verses to me.
Have you ever lacked peace in your life? You may even be a Christian, a born again blood bought Christian (the only kind the Bible recognizes as a true believer), but maybe you are new in your faith. You still don’t have the assurance of your salvation. You still think you are saved, but you doubt. Or you might wonder how God could love someone like you. After I was saved, I struggled with similar thoughts-until God really got a hold of my heart with these verses. Maybe they are inspiring Bible verses to you or will become so.
First look at verse 37. Jesus says “all the Father giveth me shall come to me.” Did you ever realize you were lost and headed toward hell? Did you ever realize Jesus was your only hope? Did you ever believe God wanted you to trust Christ? The father was calling you to come to Jesus.
What does the Bible says Jesus will do with such a person. Jesus said, “Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out.” Does it say he might cast such a person out, or that there is a chance? No, it says in no wise, or no way would he do such a thing. Have you ever wanted to be saved God’s way, to turn your life to Him, to believe in Jesus? Have you done that? God will not cast you out! Even though I was already saved, when I began to grasp those verses, it brought a peace to my life I had never had before, but read verses 39-40-it gets even better!
“And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”
How many of those which the Father gave His Son does Jesus say he will lose, a few, one or two? No, it says he will lose nothing. What does the Bible say will happen to those who truly trust Christ? He will raise us up at the last day. How many believers does it say will have everlasting life, or the forgiveness of sins-every one.
Have you ever truly given Jesus your life. Rejoice in these promises. If you have not, the Bible teaches that Jesus was God’s Son and that He died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose again three days later. It says in Romans 10:9-10, that “if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Ask him to take control of your life today.
Remember the words of Jesus:” For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) Do you have everlasting life?
