THAN GODS GRACE WOULD NOT BE GRACE!
That to me sounds very much like it is dependent upon our human decision.
Read it again:
11 He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him.
12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,
13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
Therefore, we are justified by grace alone (not of ourselves- Ephesians 2:8,9), through faith alone (not of ourselves- Hebrews 12:2), for Christ's sake alone (not of ourselves- I Peter 1:3); to God alone be the glory (Ephesians 1:3-6).
I reread it. It is still a function of the individual's decision. It is clearly conditional upon receiving Him.
BTW, why do you feel the need to insert the word "alone" when you see the word "grace" or "faith"? The Holy Spirit didn't put it there, perhaps because He didn't want it there.
"No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him
, and I will raise him up at the last day.
1 Corinthians 12:3
Therefore I tell you that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, "Jesus be cursed," and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit.
John 15:16You did not choose me
, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
1 Corinthians 2:14 14The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God
, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.
When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ
. He forgave us all our sins,
