“All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out” John 6:37, ESV
To cast out means to eject, to drive out, to expel, to leave, and to send away.
Jesus understood all too well how this felt. He was the stone the builders rejected, but He became the chief stone of the corner. Know this today that Jesus promises when you come to Him, He will never, ever, not even once, cast you out. I don’t care what you’ve done in your past; He will in no wise turn you away.
He’s not like him.
He’s not like her.
He’s not like them.
You are accepted by God! Though your sins be as scarlet, He makes you pure and as white as snow.
Receive His acceptance. Be amazed at His love and mercy. Be humbled by His grace. Now, if He accepts you, you can accept yourself, and you can accept those God send your way. Imitate the Father. If He has not rejected them, neither should you. Though their sins be as scarlet, He will make them pure and as white as snow.
Prayer: Father God, thank you for speaking to my heart. Thank you for never ever rejecting me. Everytime I come to you; you receive me with open arms. You forgive all my sins, and you treat me as though I’ve never missed it. You’ve washed me and cleansed me. I’m clean because of you. Help me to imitate you. Help me not to turn away my loved ones. Help me accept them as you’ve accepted me. I forgive any and all rejection that’s been done to me, and forgive me for rejecting others. I receive your powerful acceptance. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
