God uses His Word and the Holy Spirit, in concert, to draw you to Him, and the vail that once separated us from the Father has been lifted to give us direct access. God wants us to actively use the gift of faith we have been given, along with His Spirit, to allow ourselves to be drawn to Him in His service.
