There are many who long to be accepted. “I am accepted!” is a highly comforting thought.
And that is exactly what Jesus promises in John 6:37 (AMP): “…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]”.
The one condition that Christ requires is that you should go to Him. It is like a new neighborhood restaurant offering a delicious item for free on their launch date. All that you got to do is to go there and grab it.
What Jesus offers is free. Nevertheless you got to pay a price! What? Yes, the price is your willingness. Your willingness to believe Him. Your willingness to spend time for Him. Your willingness to receive from Him. Your willingness to follow His bidding. Your willingness to remain in Him.
To the one who pays this price, Jesus gives an astounding promise – “I will never, no never, reject you!” That’s super-comforting! Think about you being eternally protected. That’s ‘insurance unlimited’!
In a world of constant changes and broken promises, Christ’s offer provides stability and hope. As Romans 8:31 proclaims, if God is for us, who can be against us?
Question: How did you respond when you came to know that you are accepted by God?
