During the course of our lifetimes we receive countless invitations. Some we accept; others we decline. Many we simply ignore, even those with a R.S.V.P.
Some of us give little or no thought to how our response or failure to respond to those invitations impacts the person who thought enough of us to invite us in the first place.
God is constantly inviting us to a more intimate relationship with Him. Does He not deserve an affirmative response?
