receiving as a little child
Now that I am home and on the road to recovery, I continue to enjoy reading about the life of C. T. Studd. His secret of inspiration and power was no different than it is for us today. The problem with us is that we try to make ourselves believe that their times were different now and excuse ourselves from the degree of devotion they had. Consider the following comment about Studd’s life and see if it challenges you as it has me.
“The outstanding lesson which he learned during this period was to become a man of one Book. From this time onward it became a principle of his life to read the Bible, almost to the exclusion of other books, marking it copiously, and receiving it in the attitude of a little child, in simple dependence upon the Holy Spirit to illuminate the Word to him. Thus, living in direct communion with God through the Spirit and the Word, he never afterwards felt the need of conventions or other help from man to sustain and guide his spiritual life. He had learned the secret of walking with God alone.”
