C. T. Studd

Continuing on the C.T. Studd theme I thought I would add this quote: 

“I once had another religion: mincing, lisping, bated breath, proper, hunting the Bible for hidden truths, but no obedience, no sacrifice. Then came the change. The real thing came before me. Soft speech became crude salt. Words became deeds. The commands of Christ became not merely Sunday recitations, but battle calls to be obeyed. Instead of saying “Lord, Lord,” in a most reverent voice, many times and yet continuing deaf to the simplest commandments. If man is willing to obey and sacrifice, he soon learns what is the blessed reality of the fellowship of God’s son Jesus Christ”.
