The Soul Winner – Part 6

Here is the 6th batch of quotes! :) (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5 if you haven’t read them yet).

“Some of you would never win souls in pulpits; it would be a great pity if you tried, but you can win souls in the workshop, and in the laundry, in the nursery, and in the drawing room. Our hunting grounds are everywhere: by the wayside, by the fireplace, in the corner, and in the crowd.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 172)

“The trappers of North America have to find out the habits of the animals they wish to catch, and so you will have to learn how to deal with each class of cases. Some are very depressed, you will have to comfort them. Perhaps you will comfort them too much, and make them unbelieving; and, therefore, possibly, instead of comforting them, you will need sometimes to administer a sharp word to cure the sulkiness into which they have fallen. Another person may be frivolous, and if you put on a serious face you will frighten your bird away; you will have to be cheerful, and drop a word of admonition as if by accident. Some people, again, will not let you speak to them, but will talk to you; you must know the art of putting a word in edgeways.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 173)

“You will bungle at first, and very likely drive sinners off from Christ by your attempts to draw them to Him.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 173)

“True lovers of men’s souls learn the art of dealing with them, and the Holy Spirit makes them expert soul-surgeons for Jesus.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 174)

“…the way to get sinners to Christ is to love them to Christ.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 174)

“I will tell you what is not wise, and will not be thought so at the last, namely, to go about the churches, doing nothing yourself, and railing at all the Lord’s useful servants.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 175)

“I would sooner bring one sinner to Jesus Christ than unpick all the mysteries of the divine Word, for salvation is the thing we are to live for.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 175)

“Did you never win a soul for Jesus? You shall have a crown in heaven, but no jewels in it. You will go to heaven childless; and you know how it was in the old times, how the women dreaded lest they should be childless. Let it be so with Christian people; let them dread being spiritually childless.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 176)

“Oh! The joy of knowing that a sinner once at enmity has been reconciled to God, by the Holy Spirit, through the words spoken by our feeble lips.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 183)

“We must school and train ourselves to deal personally with the unconverted. We must not excuse ourselves, but force ourselves to the irksome task till it becomes easy.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 193)

“The soul-winner must be a master of the art of prayer.” (The Soul Winner. Pg. 195)
