John 5:38-47

John 5:38-47: But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe. You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life. “I do not receive honor from men. But I know you, that you do not have the love of God in you. I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive. How can you believe, who receive honor from one another, and do not seek the honor that comes from the only God? Do not think that I shall accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you—Moses, in whom you trust. For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”

John 6:44: 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 says that salvation is a choice made by men, but John 6 says that salvation is a choice made by God.

Salvation is not a one-sided event here, it requires both the drawing of God and the choice of man to accept it.

Just as a packaged gift requires both a giver and receiver to be opened, salvation requires the action of more than one individual.
