‚ÄúNo one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day.
It is written in the Prophets: ‚ÄòThey will all be taught by God.‚Äô Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me.
No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father.
I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.
I am the bread of life.
THE FATHER draws people to Jesus, and no one can go to Him unless the Father draws them.
‚Äú‚ÄúI have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you.‚Äù
(John 17:6-7 NIV)
The Father had people, He has prepared people, He watches and is with people, and He gave them to Jesus when Jesus showed up on the scene.
This doesn‚Äôt give me a hopeless or helpless attitude towards people that avoid God, but a bigger grace towards them. I know that even when God draws people, they can reject Him, but His followers should still show grace to them, in case they should change and accept Him.
