Salvation, a Divine Collaboration

Rev. Enoch Thompson | April 13, 2024 | John 6:41-51



"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)



It is easy to limit people to what we know about them physically and fail to see what God may do with and through them. The Jews were quick to show knowledge of the physical and social parentage of the Lord Jesus as He continued to explain to them that He was the bread of life which came down from Heaven. To them, this was unacceptable because they claimed to know His physical relations.


The truth about salvation is that it is the joint effort of the triune God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The revelation of the Son by the Father, through the quickening of our human spirit by the Holy Spirit of God makes salvation happen. "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).


What a wonder is the work of salvation in the human spirit.



Show gratitude to God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit for the work of grace to bring you to the place of salvation. Will you collaborate with God to get the good news of salvation to other people?



My God and Saviour, thank you for working mysteriously to bring about my salvation. I worship you, Father,  Son and Holy Spirit. May I be your agent to announce your salvation to the world around me. For your dear Name’s sake. Amen




DAILY word study: DRAWS The word "draws" comes from the Greek term "ἑλκύω" (helkýō), which carries the idea of drawing, dragging, or pulling with force. This verb indicates an active and decisive action initiated by the Father to bring individuals to Jesus.

The concept of drawing in this context implies a divine initiative in the process of salvation. It emphasizes God's sovereignty and the role of His grace in calling people to Himself. This drawing is not merely a gentle invitation but a powerful and effective work of God's Spirit, overcoming human resistance and enabling individuals to respond in faith.

Throughout Scripture, we see God's drawing power at work in various ways. In the Old Testament, God draws His people to Himself through His covenant promises and acts of deliverance. In the New Testament, Jesus, through His sacrificial death on the cross, becomes the ultimate magnet, drawing all people to Himself (John 12:32). The Holy Spirit also plays a vital role in convicting hearts and drawing them to Christ (John 16:8-11).

Reflections: Are we receptive to the prompting of the Holy Spirit, allowing ourselves to be drawn to Jesus for salvation and eternal life? How can we cooperate with God's drawing work in our lives and participate in His redemptive plan for humanity?
