Jesus said in Matt 11 “all things” were given to Him by The Father. In our passage today, we see that it is God The Father’s will that all that He has given to The Son would come to Him and that The Son would not turn them away but raise them up and give them eternal life. While the invitation goes out to all, the gift is limited to only those who come to Jesus in faith.

And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:35–40, NKJV)

Adam was the son of God when he chose to follow Eve in eating of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil (the law of sin and death). From that time until the cross, Adam and all of humanity were in captivity. It takes faith in the one who saves to be delivered from captivity. When Jesus died on the cross, He went into the grave and led captivity captive and set free those who were held captive there because of the law of sin and death. (See 1 Pet. 3:19 and Eph. 4:8.)

Consider Adam. He partook in Eve’s curse and death rather than being separated from her.

Consider Christ Jesus: He partook in Adam’s (and our) curse and death rather than being separated from us.

Receive the invitation of Christ if you have any drawing or faith to do so. Do not wait another minute.
