This weekend’s episode of Words of Grace featured part 1 of a message from John chapter 6 entitled A Word of Comfort. To believers in Sovereign Grace, John chapter 6 is a beloved passage. From it, we learn truths about Jesus as our source of spiritual sustenance as the Bread of Life, as well as principles concerning God’s sovereignty in salvation.
As a personal note, if one were to ask me what passage I might choose if I had but a single remaining message to preach, I would likely select this chapter of John’s gospel. Statements such as “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him” reveal much about man’s depravity and impotence to rescue himself from his fallen state. And of course, Jesus’ promise that “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out” give great hope and assurance that every single heir of promise will be with Christ after this world ends. No wonder it’s such a favorite!
