"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. The key to evangelism is a burden for the lost."
