God is merciful and truthful.

Scripture in focus:Β All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. John 6:37

This is a very powerful and beautiful promise. With Jesus, we have eternal security. When He came down from heaven, He came to do the Father’s will (John 6:38). The Father sent His Son to die for our wicked ways so the Father can purchase us and entrust us in the care and responsibility of His precious Son (John 6:39). We are His and no one can make a claim of ownership for He has marked us as His own after we were purchased with the blood of the Son and the Holy Spirit sealed the deal.Β

Some believers are fearful of backsliding, but fear not for:

I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

Hosea 14:4 & Jeremiah 3:22

What if we sin?

And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous

1 John 2:1

Praise God! He is so merciful towards us that there is no point in trying to make up excuses to justify turning away from Him or not being ready to accept Him fully as Lord and Savior. His ways are not ours and we’re inclined to turn away for a little while, but even in temptation, we can call on the Lord for aid.

God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

1 Corinthians 10:13 see also 2 Thessalonians 3:3

There is no excuse for not wanting to come to our Saviour and find the rest we’ve been craving in His loving arms. He will receive you and never cast you aside. If you backslide, He’ll heal you. If you sin, He’ll make intercession to the Father for you. If we fall into temptation, He’ll provide a way for you to escape and make you white as snow. How can one not want this beautiful relationship with the Creator of the Universe?
