God Holding Out His Hands

I said one night to a hard old sinner who had come on several occasions to the gospel services, "Is it not time you turned to Christ for salvation?"
He told me that he had done so that very night, and that he was a saved man.
I asked him how he knew this. Was it because he had determined to give up the drink and live a decent life?
He said, "No it was not that; but while you were preaching I thought I saw God holding out His hands to me and saying, 'I will receive you just as you are.' And I just came."
