“It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.”
The 19th-century English preacher Charles H. Spurgeon, known as the “Prince of Preachers,” recalled a time when a young man approached him for advice.
“I have preached in the streets,” the young man told him, “and I have seen no converts.”
“Do you expect people to be converted every time you preach?” Spurgeon asked.
“That is the reason you do not succeed,” said Spurgeon, “because you do not expect to do so.”
