Quotes from “A Retrospect” by James Hudson Taylor. He was the founder of the China Inland Mission. For a short biography click here: www.wholesomewords.org/missions/biotaylor.html

It is always helpful to us to fix our attention on the God-ward aspect of Christian work; to realize that the work of God does not mean so much man’s work for God, as God’s own work through man.

We should never lose sight of the higher aspect of our work- that of obedience to God, of bringing glory to His Name, of gladdening the heart of our God and Father by living and serving as His beloved children.

The inconsistencies of Christian people, who while professing to believe their Bibles were yet content to live just as they would if there were no such book, had been one of the strongest arguments of my skeptical companions.

Would it not be well if the people of God had always tell-tale faces, evincing the blessings and gladness of salvation so clearly that unconverted people might have to call conversion “becoming joyful” instead of “becoming serious”?
