Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for John 6:44


6:44 Christ having checked their murmuring, continues what he was saying, #John 6:40|. No man comes to me, unless my Father draw him - No man can believe in Christ, unless God give him power: he draws us first, by good desires. Not by compulsion, not by laying the will under any necessity; but by the strong and sweet, yet still resistible, motions of his heavenly grace.


People's Bible Notes for John 6:44


Joh 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father . . . draw him. Their obstinacy and unbelief (Joh 6:41,42) called out this. Two things are needful to come to Christ, the human will to come and the divine drawing. See Joh 5:40 Mt 23:37 Re 22:17. God "draws" by the gospel. "It is the power of God unto salvation" (Ro 1:16). If our will consents, so that we yield to the drawing, we will come to Christ.

  • Cathryn
    I really loue the fact that the Authorized KING JAMES BIBLE OF 1611 is still available for us who really do appreciate the words of the One and only true Liuing God,Yeshua HaMashiach. and this version is the only version that I trvst and I especially like the fact that the spelling is different, due to the Archaic words the spelling. why continue being like every1 else wen it comes to the spelling of words : start thinking outside the box . I have found my new writing and spelling method : thank you to the creators of this very great website. I loue you all.

    Each and every day of my life, I will forever seek the bread of life. God the father through his son Jesus Christ. For he has changed my whole life!
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Jesus is the bread of life and we must keep eating the bread for a guarantee of eternal life. John 6: 35: I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. So we should keep coming to Him daily for the satisfaction of our spiritual hunger and thirst.
