Evangelism is the sob of God. It is the anguished cry of Jesus as He weeps over a doomed city.
It is the cry of Paul, 'I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh.'
Evangelism is the heart-winning plea of Moses. 'Oh this people have sinned.—Yet now, if thou wilt, forgive their sin—; if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of the book which thou hast written.'
It is the cry of John Knox, `Give me Scotland or I die.' It is the declaration of John Wesley, 'The world is my parish.' It is the sob of parents in the night, weeping over a prodigal child.—Selected
