Be Faithful

Encouragement for your daily walk with God

One stormy night in Birmingham, England, Hudson Taylor was to speak at the Severn Street schoolroom. He was warned that no one would attend on such a stormy night, but Taylor insisted on going. "I must go even if there is no one but the doorkeeper." 

Rather than a packed house, less than a dozen people showed up. But more importantly, God showed up, and the service was marked with spiritual power. Half of those present either became missionaries or sent their children as missionaries; and the rest became faithful supporters of the China Inland Mission for many years to come. 

D.L. Moody once said: “God has called us to shine, just as much as Daniel was sent into Babylon to shine. Let no one say that he cannot shine because he has not so much influence as some others may have. What God wants you to do is to use the influence you have. Daniel probably did not have much influence down in Babylon at first, but God soon gave him more because he was faithful and used what he had."

One of my seminary professors was fond of saying, “God wants to use you more than you want to used, and bless you more than you want to be blessed.” I believe that is true of me, and YOU as well. Be a faithful Christ follower in all things, both big and small. He who called you is faithful. 

His lord said to him, “Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.Matthew 25:23
