This list of sayings by C.T. Studd was sent to me by my friend Sam Quinn. The quote below is just one of many on the page. Let me encourage you to read these quotes from a man who was a fantatic for Christ. I personally think he went too far in leaving his wife behind and like all men he had his flaws, but I think there is much we could learn from a man like him who was very, very passionate for the Lord and to reach souls.
The “romance” of a missionary is often made up of monotony and drudgery; there often is no glamour in it; it doesn’t stir a man’s spirit or blood. So don’t come out to be a missionary as an experiment, it is useless and dangerous. Only come if you feel you would rather die than not come. Lord Wolsey was right: “A missionary ought to be a fanatic or he encumbers the ground.” There are many trials and hardships. Disappointments are numerous and the time of learning the language is especially trying. Don’t come if you want to make a great name or want to live long. Come if you feel there is no greater honour, after living for Christ, than to die for Him. That does the trick in the end. It’s not the flash in the pan but the steady giving forth of light, it’s shining on and on that we need out here. Our job is to make all hear the Word. God’s job is to give penetration to His Word.
