Drawn to the Father

John 6:45   (KJV)   45 It is written in the prophets, and they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

God clearly speaks to us through nature, His prophets, His Word, and His Spirit. He is the Source of all truths; He is the ultimate Teacher. We listen; we learn; we get a glimpse of Who He is, a very small glimpse into His immeasurable love, His incomparable beauty, His inscrutable wisdoJohn 6.45 - Drawn to the Father - 2m, his unlimited power, and His mighty works, but more than enough for us to be passionately attracted to Him.

A hidden and detached God would have not benefited us; but we’re greatly blessed because our God and heavenly Father, though bigger than the entire vast universe, greater than all principalities and powers, exalted—high and lifted up, takes it upon Himself to reveal Himself to us. He evidently shows His amazing handiwork all around us so those of us who earnestly seek, find. He masterfully arranged and designed everything so that He can teach His children well.

We seek Him with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. To those of us who faithfully do, He shows Himself “fully.” One of the gentle ways He draws us to Him is by divine revelation. Wise people aptly choose to draw towards the beautiful and good. What hungry soul won’t run to the Bread of Life? What dying soul won’t run to Life Eternal? What troubled soul won’t run to the Prince of Peace, and what battered soul won’t come to the One who walks on water and stills the waves? We who see, we who hear, we who learn come.
