God is gracious, cares for us and wants to save us, but despite that, he will not save us. We have also a part to play. We have to do something about it. We have to accept our salvation by faith. We have to make the first step of faith, then God saves us. So with everything else we receive from God. It is by faith.
If our hand remains closed, we will never receive a gift from God, even if he has given it to us.
