When it comes to commitment and the simple things that Christ asks us to do – our free will is driven by desire or lack, thereof. As St. Theophan the Recluse says:

“Only one real reason remains—lack of desire. There is no point in debating with this. You will neither be brought to heaven against your will; only when you are condemned to hell you will go whether you want to or not—they will grab you and fling you there.”
