Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and anyone who comes to me I will never drive away (John 6:37)
It is comforting to know that we belong to Christ and that he will never turn us away. St. Paul reflects on this in Romans 8:38 when he says, “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” It seems the only thing that can separate us from God is our personal choice. Even then, God still loves us, but it is we who move away, not God.
