"When the days for his being taken up were fulfilled, he resolutely determined to journey to Jerusalem and he sent messengers ahead of him. On the way they entered a Samaritan village to prepare for his reception there but they would not welcome him because the destination of his journey was Jerusalem. When the disciples James and John saw this they asked, "Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven to consume them?" Jesus turned and rebuke them and they journeyed to another village." (LK: 9:51-56).
There are times that we get annoyed at people not aggreing to us or opposite to the values that we have. In the same way as the disciples of Jesus, we react with disdain and anger to unbelievers or to those who have a different kind of faith to us.
The Lord does not tolerate this behaviour as He rebuked them. It is clear that we cannot infringe on the will of others. They have their own minds and they will do their intentions with consequences, of course. On the other hand, we are not focusing on a punishing God. We set our eyes on an ever-Loving and Ever-Merciful God.
If Jesus did not force anyone, why will we? We have to be patient with everyone, not tearing each other. Pray, pray and pray.
