All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me; him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out. John 6:37
“All,” not one, or two, or ten, or a million only, but “all.”
And observe wherefore?
They are the Father’s gift to Jesus, and therefore they must come. He said elsewhere, “that I should give eternal life to as many as Thou hast given Me” (John 17:2).
Hence, therefore, there is a blessed provision, a blessed security, that they shall come; for they are the Father’s gift to Christ, as well as the purchase of Christ’s blood, and the promise is absolute in the charter of grace – “Thy people shall be willing in the day of Thy power” (Psalm 110:3). And, to give every possible encouragement to the poor coming sinner, whom God the Holy Ghost is leading by the hand to the all-precious Jesus, He adds, “And him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.”

About Greg Coleman
I am a Particular Baptist who affirms the absolute sovereignty of the triune Godhead in all things. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in the God-man Jesus Christ. He is the Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, Disposer and Judge of all that ever was, is now or ever shall be. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and men. He was made to be sin for his people and saved them from their sins by his substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross thereby satisfying the justice and wrath of God against them. The sufficiency of his death to the satisfaction of God’s justice is proven by his physical resurrection from the dead and enthronement in glory at the right hand of the Father. Jesus Christ is coming again to judge the living and the dead. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.
