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.

Discussion for John 6:44

  • some folks believe heaven or hell, nothing else follows. Jesus spoke of tear sowed among the wheat. He also spoke of Wolves in sheep clothing and it is these who have brought shame on Christians. And it is they who have turned the world against the believers of Christ. Jesus Also said, " in vein the do worship me " Why? Because of the following of doctrines of men. Some Christians say that sodomy is just another sin but God said in Deuteronomy its an Abomination. To me that is serious! And that every one should be taking it seriously. God has told us " I have set before you this day good and evil choose the good and live, for I have on pleasure in even my enemies dying. " Please don 't stone the message or the messenger for God has given us free will choose for your self and know there is consequence 's.... With all good wishes and peace profound
  • Rickey joseph a.collinsolorzano for verse 44
    WHAT CHRIST IS SPECIFICALLY GIVING US TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE FATHER WHO GAVE HIM THE COMMISSION TO COME AND GIVE HIS LIFE A RANSOM FOR ALL,WOULD ALSO BE THE ONE THAT WOULD DRAW THOSE WHOM HE SEE READIED BY DEVINE CONVICTION THROUGH THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH THAT WOULD SENSE THE HOLY SPIRIT 'S DEALING IN THEIR HEARTS MINDS SPIRITS SOULS AND LIVES THAT THEY WOULD COME TO A POINT OF UNREST AND FERVENT DESIRE AND NEED FOR DELIVERANCE FROM TERRIBLE STATE OF ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF THE FALLEN HUMAN SINFUL NATURE THAT THEY WOULD COME TO ACCEPT THE REDEMPTIVE GIFT OF SALVATION ON THEIR BEHALF THROUGH CHRIST 'S ULTIMATE SACRIFICE ON THE CROSS!!!!!
  • Dave Dickerson for verse 44
    In today 's world I find the verses 44 and 65 in John totally missing in how one comes to know Jesus Christ. The practice I see simply says... "Repeat after me and accept Jesus and you are on your way to heaven. We have filled our nation with counterfeit Christians who think they are saved. No wonder we are heading towards a pagan culture. Come to know Almighty God first and He will prepare you for that moment in accepting Christ as your Savior.
  • This is the great chain of salvation:

    Only one who is drawn by the Father can come to the Son. He who is drawn by the Father is saved by the Son.(raised up on the last day.)It is clear from the verse that this raising on the last day is unconditional, therefore infallible.

    This verse is the absolute refutation of Arminianism, but note how the Arminians handle this verse:
    --Westley simply ignores the second part of the verse, "and I will raise him up on the last day."
    --The same with the "People's Bible." The Peoples Bible goes further and adds words to the Bible: "If our will consents."

    Adding to the text what isn't there is a grave sin. Beware!

    Arminians should find it unsettling that Jesus is a Calvinist...
  • Mike Powell for verse 44
    It makes it very clear, that God chooses us, we do not choose Him. To be one's chosen or elect, means that someone else is doing the choosing or electing and it certainly is not us. God causes our will to line-up with His calling. He is sovereign and can choose whomever he wants to be His children, whether we like it or not or whether we feel it is fair or not. Romans 8:20 and 9:19-24 make it very clear.
  • God has designed and prepared a way of escape for every person, ever born. Genesis 18:14 God asks humanity," Is there anything too hard for God?" When we modernize this verse, is there anything too great to expect from His Truth, His Power, or even His Love? God is EVER-READY to save any soul that's willing to yield (humbly believe) to His Holy Word.
