Is there a limit to the strivings of God's Spirit?


"And the Lord said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man." Gen. 6:3.
NOTE - The limit is determined by the creature rather than by the Creator. It is reached when
there is an utter abandonment to evil, and further appeals would be without avail. God foreknowing all
things, may designate a definite period of probation for man, as in the case of the one hundred and twenty
years before the Flood (Gen. 6:3) ; but His Spirit never ceases to strive with man as long as there is hope of
his salvation.
