Why does anyone ever come to Christ? Why does a sinner suddenly turn from his or her sin to be saved? Why does the rebel repent to be redeemed? In John 3:16, we see from Jesus the truth that in God's love, whoever believes - from any race, class, or gender - anyone anywhere in the world - whoever believes in God's Son will be saved. But while affirming the truth of "whoever will", we must ask and answer the question of why anyone ever will, when in the Scriptures God gives us a clear picture of fallen man's anti-God depravity. The overarching answer is in the third unbreakable link in the Golden Chain of God's sovereign saving grace: that He has called us.
