God never “tries”; God does! Some speak of some other god who “wants” to save, some other jesus who is “trying” to save, yet he is frustrated by the sinner. They say their god has no hands but the sinner’s hands and no feet but the sinner’s feet. That is not the God of the Bible! But the God of the Bible does describe such men and their god, “They bear him upon the shoulder, they carry him, and set him in his place, and he standeth; from his place shall he not remove: yea, one shall cry unto him, yet can he not answer, nor save him out of his trouble” (Isaiah 46:7). Those saved by the sovereign and free grace of the one true and living God declare “Our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased” (Psalm 115:3).
