(Hebrews 10:9-10) Then he said, “Here I am, I have come to do your will.” He sets aside the first to establish the second. And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
Someone once made a comment along the lines “that God does not force his salvation onto anyone. And that God would be an abuser of power, if he was to do so. And that we have free will.”
The free will we inherited from Adam is the one will that entices us to sin every so often, like an ignorant adviser. There is only one good we are to do with such will: put it aside, and do the will of God by the Holy Spirit.
Did Jesus ask Lazarus if he wanted to be resurrected?
Did Ezekiel ask the dry bones if they wanted to be clothed with flesh and moved with life?
If we are saved today, did Christ ask for our consent of him going to the cross before he went and died on the cross?
Did Jesus ask Paul for his permission before He blinded him and shook him to his core to wake him up from his ignorance of persecuting the Christians?
For God to be an abuser of power, He would have to have received power from another entity with a set of do’s and dont’ s.
There is no other savior besides God.
“Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him.” (Psalm 115:3)
“I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me; I was found by those who did not seek me. To a nation that did not call on my name, I said, ‘Here am I, here am I.’” (Isaiah 65:1)
