Well, i think He does. He gave us prophets. He gave us the Bible, so we have access to the truth. Jesus gave His disciples the task of spreading the message, and training others to do likewise, that is one way He persuades, He has us as His ambassadors.
Paul said in Romans 10:
How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?
So, we need to tell others to repent, but, we cannot make them do so, we cannot make them understand, we only tell them. The rest is in God's hands.
