"ALL THAT THE FATHER GIVETH ME"
"All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me; him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out."
"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."
