I like what Warren Wiersbe writes about these verses in his commentary. “He explained that salvation involves both Devine sovereignty and human responsibility. The Father gives man and woman to the Son, but these men and women must come to Him, that is, believe on Him.” God is going to be doing things for us to see His glory, are we going to slow down enough to see them? Jesus is the main glory and when we hear do we allow our hearts to open and seek? No matter what God does if we don’t seek Him we will never believe Him. And if we don’t hear the message and repent and then transform we will always just wonder.
When we know God is trying to move us and we open or mind to learn by letting that knowledge move to our heart we will seek Him and we will find Him. Look at what Jesus said in verses 43-45, “But Jesus replied, ‘Stop complaining about what I said. For no one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them to me, and at the last day I will raise them up. As it is written in the Scriptures, ‘They will all be taught by God. Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from Him comes to me.”
Do you remember the time you slowed down enough to “listen to the Father?” I do. My entire life I could see and feel the good but it took 37 years to listen and then seek. I say we need to listen and understand that when we shine the light that Jesus has shown us people can see and hear God and that gives them the chance for them to grow. We can never stop planting seeds and watering them because we never know when that seed will “listen” to God and believe in Jesus. Amen
