Of the TULIP acronym the Irresistible grace is the one I don't agree with, because I also have seen people reject his love and grace.
The question is why. Why didn't I reject his grace, instead I responded to his love and grace and repented. The answer to that is not free will. Free will only answers the how not the why. Freewill is the easy answer, but it goes way beyond that. In order to want something you have to have a desire for it.
