[Xanga] Irresistible Grace

Regarding the concept of so-called Irresistible Grace:
"this act of drawing is an act of power, yet not of force; God in drawing of unwilling, makes willing in the day of his power: he enlightens the understanding, bends the will, gives an heart of flesh, sweetly allures by the power of his grace, and engages the soul to come to Christ, and give up itself to him; he draws with the bands of love. Drawing, though it supposes power and influence, yet not always coaction and force: music draws the ear, love the heart, and pleasure the mind. [emphases my own]"

-Gill's Exposition of the Bible, John 6:44
