He Has Open Arms for You, Sinner

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

There are tens of thousands now in the skies who came to Jesus just as they were, in all the filth and deshabille of the lost estate, and He received every one of them into His heart of love and arms of power. There are many thousands on earth who can testify that they have found Jesus to be a very tender and generous friend. Now, if He has received us, why should He not receive you? Be encouraged to believe that inasmuch as He has received others, He has open arms for you also.

Let me joyfully remind you that Jesus never has rejected a seeking sinner. There is not to be found in all the kingdoms of the universe a single instance of a sincere seeker after Christ being cast away, and there never shall be, for He hath not said to the seed of Jacob, “Seek ye My face in vain,” but He has said, “Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.” Beloved, if there had been a single soul cast away we should have known of it by now. It is eighteen hundred and sixty-eight years now, and if a solitary penitent had been rejected, we should have heard of it before now, for I will tell you of one who would have spread it abroad, and that is the devil. If he could get a single instance of a soul who had repented and trusted Christ but found that Christ would have nothing to do with him, it would be a standing scandal against the cross which Satan would delight to publish. I know, poor sinners, what the devil will tell you when you are coming to Christ-he will describe Jesus as a hard master, but you tell him he is a liar from the beginning, and a murderer, and that he is trying to murder your soul by making you swallow his poisonous lies. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
