From John Eldredge in Beautiful Outlaw:

“Oh how hard it is to rescue the human heart, to dislodge it from it’s chosen means of survival without toppling it into resignation, despair or defensiveness. Jesus won’t take the shortcut of a power play. He doesn’t force anyone to follow Him.”

“Be shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.” (Matthew 10.16)
