 A Challenge to Every Christian by Mrs. C.T. Studd


Say not–Is the thing possible?

But–God is omnipotent!
Say not–Look what I’d lose!
But–See what I’d gain!
Say not–Have I the wisdom?
But–Am I a fool? I Cor. iii. 18.
Say not–I might lose my life!
But–I must save their souls!
Say not–Should I leave my possessions?
But–Christ’s my inheritance!
Say not–Is it the right time?
But–Christ’s coming soon!
Say not–What salary shall I draw?
But–The Bible’s my cheque book!
Say not–I fear the hardships!
But–I shall reign if I suffer!
Say not–Who’s on the Committee?
But–God’s our Director!
Say not–Shall I not starve?
But–God feeds the birds!
Say not–I have no talents!
But–Christ is my wisdom!
Say not–Have I the faith?
But–Doubting is sin!
Say not–I am not eloquent!
But–Who made man’s mouth?
Say not–I don’t want to be fanatical!
But–Make me a flame of fire!
Say not–I am a doctor. Who’ll build and support my hospital?
But–I trust God for all!
Say not–I fear the devil!
But–With the sling of faith and a smooth stone from the Book, I’ll knock Goliath’s head off!
Say not–Good-bye (in tears), I’ll soon come back again!
But–I’m off to the Devil’s Den to turn the Devil out! How lucky I am! I’ve got my “Blue” at last! Certainly I am to be congratulated. Thanks awfully!

Adieu!

Up, for this is the day: is not the Lord gone out before thee?”
Up! Up! Ye Baraks.
Up! Up! Ye Deborahs.
Up! Up! to this work of the Lord.

–From “With C.T. Studd In Congo Forests” by Norman Grubb, Chapter 27 quoting one of “Mother” Studd’s missionary pamphlets printed in the early 1920′s to gather workers for the “Heart of Africa Mission”

Amen. What a blessing and spiritual challenge for us to trust in our omnipotent God who has all sufficiency. "All things are yours."

I love how she is referred to as "mother" Studd here.



"It is most important that married missionaries should be double missionaries, not half or a quarter or eighth-part missionaries..Unless you intend your wife to be a true missionary, not merely a wife, homemaker, and friend, do not join us." - Hudson Taylor

1Co 5:7,8For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
