I am so grateful for gospel-centered, glory-driven men like Andrew Fuller. He understood that the truth of the sovereignty of the supreme Creator God does not negate the gospel urgency that believers are called to be a part of. This quote gives insight into his correct understanding of God’s sovereignty and the duty of each believer, and how they wonderfully fit together.
I believe it is the duty of every minister of Christ plainly and faithfully to preach the gospel to all who will hear it; and, as I believe the inability of men to [do] spiritual things to be wholly of the moral, and therefore of the criminal kind—and that it is their duty to love the Lord Jesus Christ, and trust in him for salvation, though they do not; I therefore believe free and solemn addresses, invitations, calls, and warnings to them, to be not only consistent, but directly adapted as means, in the hand of the Spirit of God, to bring them to Christ. I consider it as part of my duty that I could not omit without being guilty of the blood of souls.
