Sweet Drawing

"By the sweet drawing of the Spirit, the sinner finds 'a peace with God which passeth all understanding, which keeps his heart and mind through Jesus Christ our Lord.' Now, you will plainly perceive that all this may be done without any compulsion. Man is as much drawn willingly, as if he were not drawn at all; and he comes to Christ with full consent, with as full as consent as if no secret influence had ever been exercised in his heart. But that influence must be exercised, or else there never has been and there never will be, any man who either can or will come to the Lord Jesus Christ."
-Spurgeon
