“Some of you have read the words of that aged saint who, on his ninetieth birthday, told of all God’s goodness to him—I mean George Muller. What did he say he believed to be the secret of his happiness, and of all the blessing which God had given him? He said he believed there were two reasons. The one was that he had been enabled by grace to maintain a good conscience before God day by day; the other was, that he was a lover of God’s Word. Ah, yes, a good conscience is complete obedience to God day by day, and fellowship with God every day in His Word, and prayer—that is a life of absolute surrender." - Andrew Murray
Hudson Taylor is one of the most famous missionaries in human history. The mission he led to China changed the Chinese church forever, leading to thousands converted in his time and the creation of a mission agency that is still around today, Overseas Mission Fellowship. He took the revolutionary route of not forcing western culture on the people he was trying to reach out to, but to adopt the customs that were not against God’s word such as hair styles and dress. This helped change the mission field forever as missionaries became less cultural missionaries and more Gospel missionaries.
In this episode, Hudson Taylor explains the source of power available to all Christians to do God’s will for them in their lives. He also encourages us to live a life filled with purpose to win lost souls to Christ.
