Daily devotional: God the Father draws people to Jesus

Scripture
"No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day."
John 6:44 NIV

Observation
The only work God requires is to believe in Jesus (v.35), but people do not come to Jesus unless God the Father draws them to Jesus.

Application
Don't forget that God is who draws people to Jesus. While important to share my faith, it is even more important to pray for my family, friends, and neighbors, that God would draw each of them to Jesus.

Prayer
Heavenly Father, thank you for this new day, for giving me abundant life, and for filling me with Your Spirit and Your peace. Please work in the lives of all who I know or will come into contact with. Please draw each person to Jesus. And then please give me opportunities, and when you do please help me to see the opportunities clearly, and help me to share Your Good News with each one. But please keep their hearts prepared and tender towards You so that they may receive your free gift of everlasting life. I love you!
