Run a Rescue Shop within a Yard of Hell

C. T. Studd, famous cricketeer and outspoken evangelical missionary, once said this:

“Some wish to live within the sound of Church or Chapel bell; I want to run a Rescue Shop within a yard of hell.”

If only we had more Christians who had more of this kind of mindset and less of a world-loving, comfort-driven, risk-averse kind of faith.  Fear God, not man; serve God, not your own interests.  Step out in faith and do something big, really big, with your life.

You can read a bit more about Studd in this book.  If you’re a PhD student in religious history in need of a fun topic, think about Studd.  He was an unpredictable guy, but he lived life in view of a big God and attempted big things for him.
