“Hold God’s faithfulness”

“The Bible…portrays faith as stepping forward not into darkness but into God’s light and truth… Let us see that in theory we hold that God is faithful; that in daily life we count upon it; and that at all times and under all circumstances we are fully persuaded of this blessed truth…

“…Want of trust is at the root of almost all our sins and all our weakness; and how shall we escape from it, but by looking at him, and observing his faithfulness? As the light which shines from the dark waters of the lake is the reflection of the sun’s rays, so man’s faith is the impress and reflection of God’s faith. The man who holds God’s faith will not be reckless or foolhardy, but he will be ready for every emergency. The man who holds God’s faith will dare obey him, however impolitic it may appear.”

-quote from Hudson Taylor in “Radical Discipleship” by Roger Steer, p. 28-29
