"If you want the very best that God has for you, you will have to be just like Jesus. You will have to give God your very best. The Holy Spirit of God invites you to allow Him to work in you and through you, and because you were made in the image and likeness of God, you will have to invite God to work in you and through you. "If ye, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?" Luke 11:13
No one comes to God without invitation and God comes to no one without invitation. It's how God made us."
