James Hudson Taylor
With GOD all things are possible, and no conviction ever takes place save by the almighty power of the HOLY GHOST. The great need, therefore, of every Christian worker is to know GOD.
Taylor quotes
Satan may build a hedge about us and fence us in and hinder our movements, but he cannot roof us in and prevent our looking up.
Taylor
If we could offer to the ungodly a worldly plan which would ensure their prospering in all that they undertake, how eagerly they would embrace it! And yet when GOD Himself reveals an effectual plan to His people how few avail themselves of it!.




Taylor James Hudson quotes
Let there be no reservation; give yourselves up fully and wholly to Him whose you are and whom you wish to serve in this work; and then there can be no disappointment.
Taylor James Hudson
When you need it, rest in body; rest always in spirit.
James Hudson Taylor quotes
The highest service demands the greatest sacrifice, but it secures the fullest blessing and the greatest fruitfulness.
James Hudson Taylor
If we are faithful to GOD in little things, we shall gain experience and strength that will be helpful to us in the more serious trials of life.
Taylor James Hudson quotes
It needs the presence of special difficulties to manifest to all the workings of God’s mighty power, and for such difficulties we may and should be grateful, and not cast down.
Taylor
But God makes no mistakes; according to their service He divides the help, and those who are called to the holiest service are those who can have least assistance.
Taylor James Hudson
It was no vain or unintelligent act when, knowing the land, its people and climate, I laid my dear wife and the darling children with myself on the altar for this service.
James Hudson Taylor
I . . . know how much easier it is to lean on an arm of flesh than on the Lord; but I have learned too how much less safe it is.




James Hudson Taylor quotes
Let us give up our work, our thoughts, our plans, ourselves, our lives, our loved ones, our influence, our all, right into His hand, and then, when we have given all over to Him, there will be nothing left for us to be troubled about, or to make trouble about.
James Hudson Taylor
I almost wish I had a hundred bodies; they should all be devoted to my Savior in the missionary cause.
Taylor quotes
I could not think that GOD was poor, that He was short of resources, or unwilling to supply any want of whatever work was really His. It seemed to me that if there were lack of funds to carry on work, then to that degree, in that special development, or at that time, it could not be the work of GOD.
Taylor James Hudson
China is not to be won for Christ by quiet ease-loving men and women.
Taylor James Hudson quotes
We may fail, do fail continually, but He never fails.
James Hudson Taylor
You do not need a great faith, but faith in a great God.
James Hudson Taylor quotes
And he who in all things recognises himself as the servant of GOD may count on a sufficiency from GOD for all manner of need, and look with confident expectation to GOD to really prosper him in whatever he does.
James Hudson Taylor
We wish to see churches and Christian Chinese presided over by pastors and officers of their own countrymen, worshipping the true God in the land of their fathers, in the costume of their fathers, in their own tongue wherein they were born, and in edifices of a thoroughly Chinese style of architecture.
Taylor James Hudson
I said, ‘You are now placed in a position to help the Chinese as you have never been before. They see that your being a foreigner is now no protection, but increases your danger. Let them see that you are rejoicing in God . . . that you do not need any other protection and that you do not go away, although you might; that you put your trust in God, and are prepared either to suffer or be delivered as He sees best, will learn that there is something in the Gospel worth risking life for.’ What was the result? In almost every place where there were native Christians they grew (in spiritual maturity) as never before.
