The openness of the gospel invitation

Hugh Martin writing on the gospel and the atonement a few years before his death .

The clause which succeeds the text is a very precious one—“Him that cometh unto Me I will in no wise cast out.” It gives a warrant of high encouragement to every sinner who hears the joyful sound to embrace the saving offer which it conveys, and accept the Saviour whom it reveals. It applies equally to unreconciled sinners of every age, and nation, and character…It embraces in its wide extent and its sweeping generality all of the fallen family of Adam to whom the message of reconciliation has been sent, and it shuts out no one who does not shut himself out. All who come are welcome. Him that cometh, be he who he may, I will in no wise cast out.
