Do you know that your ability to know God was actually cause by Him.

Do you know that your ability to know God was actually caused by God?

Ezekiel 36:27
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
27 I will (A)put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My
statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances.

Acts 16:14
English Standard Version (ESV)
14 One who heard us was a woman named Lydia, from the city of Thyatira, a seller of purple goods, (A)who was a worshiper of God. The Lord (B)opened her heart to pay attention to what was said by Paul.

1 Corinthians 12:3
New Living Translation (NLT)
So I want you to know that no one speaking by the Spirit of God will curse Jesus, and no one can say Jesus is Lord, except by the Holy Spirit.

Acts 18:27
English Standard Version (ESV)
27 And when he wished to cross to (A)Achaia, (B)the brothers encouraged him and (C)wrote to the disciples to welcome him. When he arrived, (D)he greatly helped those who through grace had believed,
You are able to believe in Jesus not because you chose Him. But that He had chose you in the beginning of time.

2 Thessalonians 2:13
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
13 (A)But we should always give thanks to God for you, (B)brethren beloved by the Lord, because (C)God has chosen you [a]from the beginning (D)for salvation [b](E)through sanctification [c]by the Spirit and faith in the truth.

Ephesians 1:4
New Living Translation (NLT)
4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.

If you are the chosen one of God, the cross will make sense to you. Causing you to believe in Him.

Acts 13:48
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
48 When the Gentiles heard this, they began rejoicing and glorifying (A)the word of [a]the Lord; and as many as (B)had been appointed to eternal life believed.

John 10:27
New Living Translation (NLT)
27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

Man are unable to Love God because they are born hater of God.

Romans 3:11
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
11 There is none who understands,
There is none who seeks for God;
Romans 1:28-32
English Standard Version (ESV)
28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, (A)God gave them up to (B)a debased mind to do (C)what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know (D)God's righteous decree that those who practice such things (E)deserve to die, they not only do them but (F)give approval to those who practice them.

A natural man is unable to know God

1 Corinthians 2:14
English Standard Version (ESV)
14 The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are (A)folly to him, and (B)he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.

Jeremiah 13:23
New Living Translation (NLT)
23 Can an Ethiopian[a] change the color of his skin?
    Can a leopard take away its spots?
Neither can you start doing good,
    for you have always done evil.

We learn to Love because Jesus first love us.

1 John 4:10
English Standard Version (ESV)
10 In this is love, (A)not that we have loved God (B)but that he loved us and sent his Son to be (C)the propitiation for our sins.

Christ did not die for any upon condition, if they do believe; but He died for all God's elect, that they should believe - John Owen
