12/30 - The Father Has Drawn You

John 6:44-45

No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draw him, and I will raise him on the last day. It is written in the prophets: 'They shall all be taught by God.' Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from him comes to me.


The very fact that any of us come to Christ means that the Father has drawn us. We have all been called -- PERSONALLY -- by God the Father, creator of heaven and earth, and all that is seen and unseen. The most important being in the world has called us. He's asked us to come to Him.  He's told us how we should live. He has things He wants us to do.

If Albert Pujols called and said that he wanted to meet you, would you go?  How about the President of the United States? Warren Buffet? Bill Gates? Pope Benedict XVI? The bishop of your diocese? The president of your company? Your favorite celebrity?

Folks, if you've come to Jesus in any way in your life, you've had a better thing happen. You have been called by God.  You have been involved in a supernatural transaction. You've been the recipient of a miracle. Rejoice in it!
