God gave us free will so we could choose but God wants us to choose His will for our lives. God ordered the people of Israel to choose but told them to choose life. Jesus sought His Father's will above His own life. That choice to serve God and be conformed to His will is going to have to be made by all of humanity before they can enter into eternal life. God is entrusting us to choose eternal life?
