He Works to Not Lose You

He Works to Not Lose You

John 6:39  “And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.”

When Jesus was here physically, He had the same limitations that we have.  He could not work with everyone as He did the with the 12.  To the 12 He said, ‘Come and follow Me’.  For 3 years He worked to not lose them.  With the woman caught in adultery He said, ‘Go and sin no more’.  For her she had one shot.  This was her chance at being drawn to and finding God.  

But today He is not bound by physical limitations.  When any are drawn, He works to not lose them.  If in our chance we are drawn, no longer does He have to say to some, ‘Go and sin no more’; instead, now to all He is able to say, ‘Come and follow Me’. 

Now He is able to focus on each of us as He did with each of His disciples—as He did with Mary, Martha and Lazarus.  His only limitation now is us.  To each of us He says, ‘Come and follow Me’.  He grants us the opportunity to be with Him as Mary was—with Him as John was—and yet how many live like they just met Him once and heard Him say, ‘Go and sin no more’? 

He works to not lose you.
