The Doctrines Of Grace In Evangelism

Ecclesiastes 11:4-6:
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.  

C.H. Spurgeon
(Sermon 2264, Metropolitan Tabernacle, July 3rd, 1890).
