Hello and thank you for writing this article. I’m going to be preaching at my church second Sunday and this article really helped me to get my thoughts in order. I may not used everything that you wrote but it helped me narrow down the words I want to use thank you very much.

I see in some of these cited Scriptures that God loves us. I don’t see here that He pursues us, so the title and conclusions seem somewhat enigmatic.

Hello Barry. Notice that the Prodigal’s father was watching and waiting for him, and ran to greet and embrace Him. John 6:44 shows in the Greek that God just doesn’t draw us to Christ but the Greek says “drags” as in the same word when Paul & Silas were dragged into jail. Romans 8:28-30 also shows that ” And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,[h] for those who are called according to his purpose. 29 For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.” God uses the word “call” 3 times. John says we “who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:13). Ephesians chapter 1 shows Who made the first move, and it wasn’t us, as dead men can’t respond to anything (Eph 2:1-2). Does this help. This is crystal clear that God had to draw us, God had to call us, and God had to quicken us…that is all from God!
