Walther on John 6:37

Jesus "testified that He receives without exception all sinners who come to Him in whatever condition they happen to be. These include young sinners and old sinners, coarse sinners and fine sinners, sinners not already converted and sinners who have converted but fell away, honorable sinners and infamous sinners, sinners He knows will remain with Him and sinners He knows will sooner or later fall away from Him. Jesus receives all sinners, wherever they may be and at whatever time they come to Him, whether it is in the blossom of their life or the hour of their death."

-- C. F. W. Walther, God Grant It: Daily Devotions, Gerhard P. Grabenhofer, Trans. (St. Louis: Concordia, 2006) p. 523.
