Win by Love

"It is Christ’s love, known and felt, which creates the spirit seen in such men Robert Murray M’Cheyne whose hearers believed that he was ‘dying to have them converted’. ‘We win by love,’ says Spurgeon. ‘We win hearts for Jesus by love, by sympathy with their sorrows, by anxiety lest they should perish, by pleading with God for them with all our hearts that they would not be left to die unsaved, by pleading with them for God that, for their own sake, they would seek mercy and find grace.’"
Quoted in Morris, Memoirs of Fuller, pp. 80, 82
