Enslaved by God

Here is the logic from the bible:

Jesus says in John 6:44 “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.”

No one can come to Jesus unless Father God draws him and brings him to Jesus.

Jesus repeats this in John 6:65 b “For this reason I have said to you, that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted him from the Father.” 

Paul highlights this gift of the gospel coming from Jesus in Philipians 1:29 “For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,”

Note “to you it has been granted.” Given by God as a slave to Christ.

Ephesians 2:8-9 

From the Passion Bible:

“For it was only through this wonderful grace that we believed in him. Nothing we did could ever earn this salvation, for it was the gracious gift from God that brought us to Christ!  So no one will ever be able to boast, for salvation is never a reward for good works or human striving.”

 

 

 

 

No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day (John 6:44). For this reason I have said to you, that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted him from the Father (John 6:65). For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake (Philippians 1:29). For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast (Ephesians 2:8-9). All things have been delivered to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and any one to whom the Son chooses to reveal him (Matthew 11:27). And Jesus said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 16:17). A woman named Lydia, from the city of Thyatira, a seller of purple fabrics, a worshiper of God, was listening; and the Lord opened her heart to respond to the things spoken by Paul (Acts 16:14).
