All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.
This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day.
even as You gave Him authority over all flesh, that to all whom You have given Him, He may give eternal life.
Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
“I have manifested Your name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world; they were Yours and You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word.
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
for the words which You gave Me I have given to them; and they received them and truly understood that I came forth from You, and they believed that You sent Me.
He has regarded the prayer of the destitute
And has not despised their prayer.
Your people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power;
In holy array, from the womb of the dawn,
Your youth are to You as the dew.
“Come now, and let us reason together,”
Says the Lord,
“Though your sins are as scarlet,
They will be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They will be like wool.
You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth,
And called from its remotest parts
And said to you, ‘You are My servant,
I have chosen you and not rejected you.
“A bruised reed He will not break
And a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish;
He will faithfully bring forth justice.
Let the wicked forsake his way
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to the Lord,
And He will have compassion on him,
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.
But the other answered, and rebuking him said, “Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?
No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.
And He was saying, “For this reason I have said to you, that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted him from the Father.”
They answered him, “You were born entirely in sins, and are you teaching us?” So they put him out.
I am no longer in the world; and yet they themselves are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep them in Your name, the name which You have given Me, that they may be one even as We are.
The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,
But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,
But we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth.
Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those who would believe in Him for eternal life.
Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness.”
For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another.
For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.
Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us.
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.
