What a silly question! Of course you do! What believer doesn’t?
Now that we’ve answered the silly question, consider the following words of Jesus:
“All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.” “ – John 6:37-40
Without trying to explain away anything we find troubling in the above passage, what is Jesus saying?
1. There exists a group of people given by the Father to the Son.
2. All those given to the Son by the Father will come to the Son.
3. The Son will lose none of those who come to him, but will accomplish His mission on earth.
4. All who believe in the Son have eternal life and will be raised up on the last day.
Do you STILL believe Jesus?
One would have to have an extreme theological bias to the contrary to miss Jesus’ crystal clear teaching in this passage.
One would, wouldn’t one?
