Scripture

“I assure you that everyone who has given up house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the Kingdom of God, will be repaid many times over in this life, and will have eternal life in the world to come.”

~Luke 18:29-30, NLT

Quote

It pays to serve Jesus, it pays every day; it pays every step of the way

~Frank Huston

In 1880 an uneducated evangelist by the name of Dwight L. Moody felt God leading him to hold an evangelistic meeting at Cambridge University. Moody had a 6th grade education and Cambridge was one of the most prestigious institutions of higher learning in the world. No one encouraged him; as a matter of fact they discouraged him and some even scoffed. The crusade did not get off to a good start and Moody’s critics were having a field day but mid-way through the week, things changed dramatically. The Holy Spirit fell and the altar was filled. Hundreds of brilliant students gave their life to Jesus including the Cambridge Seven [Charles Thomas Studd, Harry Beauchamp, Stanley P. Smith, Arthur Polhill-Turner, Cecil H. Polhill-Turner, Dixon Edward Hoste, and William Wharton Cassel]. Most of these young men came from wealthy families and all became Missionaries to China. They all worked with the renowned Hudson Taylor. Can you imagine, seven brilliant theologians and seven humble Missionaries coming out of one meeting.
