And the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. John 6:37.

“This man receives sinners” and He turns away no one. We come to Him in weakness and sin, with trembling faith, small knowledge, and slender hope; but He does not cast us out. We come by prayer, often by imperfect prayer; with confession, and that confession faulty; with praise, and that praise far short of its merits; but He receives us.  We come diseased, polluted, worn out, and worthless; but He never turns us away.  Let us come again today to Him who never casts us out.

 This promise is very wide, “The one (anyone) who comes.”  Anyone— no matter who they are—who really comes to Christ will find acceptance and blessing.  The main thing is to get to Christ, to come indeed to Him.  He has pledged Himself not to cast out those who come.  Believe and pray that promise.  The fact that we have sinned should not keep us away. Indeed when we have sinned there is all the more reason that we should come. Come today just as you are and Christ will not turn you away.--Anonymous
