Spurgeon on Evangelism
"Men need to be told that, except divine grace shall bring them out of their enmity to God, they must eternally perish; and they must be reminded of the sovereignty of God, that He is not obliged to bring them out of this state, that He would be right and just if He left them in such a condition, that they have no merit to plead before Him, and no claims upon Him, but if they are to be saved, it must be by grace, and by grace alone. The preacher's work is to throw sinners down in utter helplessness, that they may be compelled to look up to Him who alone can help them" [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Soul Winner (Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans, 1963), 24].
"Soul winning is the chief business of the Christian minister; indeed, it should be the main pursuit of every true believer. We should say with Simon Peter, 'I go a fishing,' and with Paul our aim should be, 'That I might by all means save some'" [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Soul Winner (Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans, 1963), 15].
