IMO, God Himself must make the first move ... God's gift of grace-faith-salvation (Eph 2:8-9).
And I especially do like these repetitive explanations of Jesus ...
“All that the Father gives to Me will come to Me” (John 6:37)
“This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me
I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.” (John 6:39)
“No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him” (John 6:44)
“It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’
Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me.” (John 6:45)
“And He said, “Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me
unless it has been granted to him by My Father.” (John 6:65)
“My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all;
and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.” (John 10:29)
“... as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life
to as many as You have given Him.” (John 17:2)
“I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me,
for they are Yours.” (John 17:9)
“Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am,
that they may behold My glory which You have given Me” (John 17:24)
“Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted.” (Matthew 15:13)
