Spurgeon, from his sermon, "Christ Crucified"

Only think of Christ going after a sinner, crying after a
sinner, begging a sinner to let him save him--
that is just what Jesus does to his chosen ones.

The sinner runs away from him, but free-grace pursues
him, and says-- "Sinner, come to Christ."

And if our hearts are shut up, Christ puts his hand in at the
door, and if we do not rise, but repulse him coldly, he
says-- "I must, I will come in!"

He weeps over us until his tears win us;
he cries after us until his cries prevail;
and at last in his own well determined hour,
he enters into our heart, and there he dwells.
