We only resist what we don’t understand. Jesus doesn’t nor has He ever manipulated someone to turn their lives over to Him. Once a person’s eyes are opened and the ‘Christ’ in Jesus is revealed they will always choose Him….no matter what!! Why you ask?! It’s simple, He is simply irresistible! Eugene Peterson penned the eloquence of Jesus’s irresistibility in John 6:37, “Jesus said, “I am the Bread of Life. The person who aligns with me hungers no more and thirsts no more, ever. I have told you this explicitly because even though you have seen me in action, you don’t really believe me. Every person the Father gives me eventually comes running to me. And once that person is with me, I hold on and don’t let go. I came down from heaven not to follow my own whim but to accomplish the will of the One who sent me.” Beloved, I got good news, in Christ we no longer hunger for acceptance and we no longer thirst to understand our existence.
In Christ’s irresistible love, we discover that we are divinely placed on this earth to follow and accomplish God’s will, plan, and purpose in our lives through the aid and direction of the Holy Spirit!
