"All that the Father gives Me shall come to Me," and the last half of the verse, "The one who comes to Me, I will certainly not cast out." Absolute certainty that Christ will in no wise cast out anyone who comes to Him. Now the term "cast out" in this verse is often taken in the sense of "turn away." The one who comes to Me, I will not turn away. I won't refuse him. I won't refuse to accept him. And certainly that's true. Can you imagine? The Father wants to give a gift to His Son. He says, "I don't want it." That's not possible. But that's not what Jesus is saying here. The word translated "cast out" is used with reference to something that's already in that is ejected or driven out. It's the same word used with reference to demons. They're in and they're cast out. Or when Jesus drove them out of the temple. Same word. He cast them out of the temple. And what He's saying here is He's saying if you ever come to Me - if My Father ever gives you to Me, I'll never get rid of you. I'll hold on to you forever. I will in no wise part with you. Nothing could cause Me to part with you. Douglas McMillan - he told a story. He said he had a Bible that his father gave him. His father had died. But that Bible his father gave him is up there on the shelf. It's all worn out, falling apart. And some friend came and was looking through his books. He said, "You ought to throw that Bible away. It's about to fall apart." He said, "No way I'll ever get rid of that. My father gave that to me." That's what Jesus is talking about here. I will in no wise - nothing could cause Me to get rid of them and throw them away. I've received them as a gift from the Father. Beloved, if you're a Christian, Christ is never going to part with you. And He goes on to explain why. Verse 38, "For..." now He says, "He that comes to Me I will certainly not cast out, for I have come down from heaven not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me." He says the reason that I will never cast away anybody who has been given to Me is that I came down here to accomplish a purpose. I came down here to do the will of Him who sent Me. What's that, Lord? Well, the next verse: "This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of those that He's given Me... of all that He's given Me, I lose nothing." Not one. "...But raise them up on the last day." He said I came down here to accomplish a purpose. I came to save everyone that the Father's given Me and I'm not going to fail at what I came to do.
