Why Free Choice passages?

In the bible there is an abundance of passages that talk about how man needs to choose God. Why?
Because God wants us to experience the pleasure of choosing him. Of inviting Him into our lives, and acccepting his rule. God wants you to use your freed will for His sake. He has given you yet another good thing to have, to use to glorify Him with. He wants you to taste the fruit and enjoy it.
Satan on the other hand convinces you that you must make a go of it alone, and suddenly this good gift God has given you becomes a crushing burden that works better to suck the life out of your life than any other weapon he has. Nothing is better for Satan than to turn a true joy into a dreadful specter.
Thats why God has given us passages assuring us He is the author and perfecter of our faith, so we can have the joy return to us. So we can freely and clearly see what justification and sanctification are all about.
