|1 John 4:19 We love, because He first loved us.|
|Subject: Do we "will" to love?|
Bible Note: Hi Doc,
"To come to faith in Christ one must first desire Christ, perceive and take delight in His unmatched beauty, and have a love for Him that is greater than a love of sin. Faith will never 'just happen' out of thin air but actually requires that we desire Him, for we only choose that which we most desire."
This is NOT true! Did Saul (Paul) desire Christ? Maybe I am by myself in this, but I didn't desire Christ before I was saved nor until I heard the words of the Gospel.
"Words are not enough", we are convinced by words. Was the world created by words (the Word)?
