Called to Missions or to Stay at Home? – Hudson Taylor

It will not do to say that you have no special call to go to the mission field.  With these facts before you and with the command of the Lord Jesus to go and preach the gospel to every creature, you need rather to ascertain whether you have a special call to stay at home.

Rest for the heavy-laden – Hudson Taylor

Rest for the heavy-laden – Hudson Taylor

To every toiling, heavy-laden sinner, Jesus says, “Come to me and rest.” But there are many toiling, heavy-laden believers, too. For them this same invitation is meant. Note well the words of Jesus, if you are heavy-laden with your service… “Come to me and rest.” Never, never did Christ send a heavy laden one to work.

The Prayer Life of Hudson Taylor – DE Hoste

I should like to allude to a few points in the character of Mr. Hudson Taylor which impressed me personally, and which I think had something to do with the blessing that God granted to his efforts on behalf of this country (China). First his prayerfulness; he was of necessity a busy man, but he always regarded prayer itself as in reality the most needful and important part of the work.

God’s Promises are Sufficient – Hudson Taylor

Are we not told to seek first the Kingdom of God—not the means to advance it—and that “all these things” shall be added to us? Such promises are surely sufficient.

The Bible is Sure! – Hudson Taylor

If the Bible were not true the sooner we found it out and threw it aside the better … but if it is true, the sooner we live up to it and act up to it the better. If any of you were offered a bank of England note, whether for five pounds or five thousand pounds, you would never doubt the value of it, you would take the words printed on it as sure. And are not the words printed in this book [the Bible] as sure?
