What Jesus Did! 'God's Work on People's Hearts' — John 6:43-44

Tuesday, May 8, 2018

But Jesus said, "Stop complaining to each other. The Father is the One who sent me. And the Father is the One who brings people to me. I will raise up those people on the last day. If the Father does not bring a person to me, then that person cannot come to me."
— John 6:43-44 NLT
Illustration of John 6:43-44 NLT — "Stop complaining to each other."

Key Thought

One of the reasons we pray so fervently for the lost is that God's work of opening their hearts and drawing them to Jesus is crucial. Who are you praying for God to draw closer to Jesus? Or maybe a better question may be, "Who do you know that needs Jesus? Are you praying for God to draw them close?"

Today's Prayer

Gracious Father and Almighty God, I ask that you be at work in the following people's lives, drawing them to Christ and opening their hearts to the Gospel... In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
