The Doctrines Of Grace In Evangelism
He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds
shall not reap.
As thou knowest not what
is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is
with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.
In the morning sow thy
seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether
shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.
Dear friends, there are
persons to whom we should never go to seek their salvation if we regarded the
winds and the clouds…
You cannot make the gospel
enter into men's hearts. You cannot tell how it does enter and change them. The
Spirit of God does that; but your duty is to go on telling it.
You have nothing to do with
the result of your sowing; that remains with the Lord. That which you sow in the
morning may prosper, or the seed that you scatter in the evening; possibly God
will bless both.
You are to keep on sowing,
whether you reap or not.
