The Lord gives. Man must receive.

Seek the Lord. The love of heaven is “from everlasting to everlasting,” Psalms 103:17. It “endures forever,” Psalms 106:1. But it can be ignored. Herein lays the wonder of grace. Salvation involves divine initiative and human response. The Lord gives. Man must receive. When we do not accept what He offers, He cannot supply what we need, Matthew 23:37.
