44No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
English Standard Version
44No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day.
44 You're not in charge here. The Father who sent me is in charge. He draws people to me - that's the only way you'll ever come. Only then do I do my work, putting people together, setting them on their feet, ready for the End.
New King James Version
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.
New Living Translation
44 For no one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them to me, and at the last day I will raise them up.
The discovery of their guilt, danger, and remedy, by the teaching of the Holy Spirit, makes men willing and glad to come, and to give up every thing which hinders applying to him for salvation. The Father's will is, that not one of those who were given to the Son, should be rejected or lost by him. No one will come, till Divine grace has subdued, and in part changed his heart; therefore no one who comes will ever be cast out. The gospel finds none willing to be saved in the humbling, holy manner, made known therein; but God draws with his word and the Holy Ghost; and man's duty is to hear and learn; that is to say, to receive the grace offered, and consent to the promise. None had seen the Father but his beloved Son; and the Jews must expect to be taught by his inward power upon their minds, and by his word, and the ministers whom he sent among them.
