Hudson Taylor

Student Review
I have seen that living in luxury is pointless and not only that but it can effect the way one lives for God. When you live with just the necessities, you show yourself that there is more to entertainment and comfort in life, that seeking material wealth all the time, Is a waste of time and the precious gift of life which God has bestowed upon us to live for His glory and not our own. Gods will is indeed inedible. Nothing we can do will prevent what He has in store for us in this life and the next. When we do follow Gods will and obey Him, much joy and peace will pursue those who follow Christ. Blessings abound in the righteous living of the one who obeys and hears God.

Hudson Taylor was a calm, peaceful man, who learned many things about God and became closer to Him through self-sacrifice and dedication to God in all aspects of his life. Hudson trained himself to live on just the necessities, and nothing more in order that he depend upon God for everything and even his very meal everyday. He lived in a most humble and poor conditions to show his dependence upon God in every day life and activity. He was obedient and listened to the call of God. He was described as many of the fruits of the Spirit that God shows in the Word. Sacrifice became a daily thing for Hudson, as God molded and shaped Hudson for His will.

Hudson Taylor was just that sort of man, one who you could call a saint. He would go where no one would want to go. And do what no one would want to do. He willed to do Gods will, and that was to go to china and spread the good news of salvation to all the lost and hurting people in china. He was to a fairly financially stable family. Except he was not saved yet when he was just a lad. Yet his mother prayed earnestly for a long time for the salvation of her only son. The prayer was answered by God, when Hudson accidentally picked up a Christian brochure and read of the saving love of Jesus and Christ and what Christ did on the Cross of calvary, along time ago for the sins of Hudson and all of humanity. Hudson then felt the call and desire to go to china to be a light for Christ. While Hudson saved and lived as poorly as possible in order to save as much as possible. Hudson worked in the medical field gaining knowledge that would someday be very useful in China. Upon work He became ill with a fatal fever, which through prayer and meditation and the good medical uses, was restored to full health after a time period. During the time period Hudson saved his money he dealt with the issue of fully relying on and trusting God for everything. Hudson then proceeded to China and was a witness and testimony to all for Christ glory feeding the God starved people in need of Christ love in the war and poverty stricken country. Hudson was an example of what the missionary should be today. Hudson showed that giving your all to God brought rewards to those who obeyed Him. Hudson succeeded in conveying the gospel efficiently to the Chinese people in Shanghai and other related cities of china.
Hudson showed as an example that leaving behind all belongings and depending upon God for everything required faith and if that faith was present then much blessings and prosperity through Christ abound.
Hudson was an example of faith in doing missions for the Lord.
Hudson?s strategy was to leave and forsake al in order to do the service of God.
Students response
Hudson is an example to me, in that He showed an extreme amount of faith in forsaking all to follow the Lords plan and will for his life and those in China. Hudson depended on the Lord for everything. This teaches me to do the same. Hudson was a man of little wants or need for material possessions for comfort or pleasure. Hudson obeyed God in Gods plan for Hudson to go to China, this obedience brought protection and peace and joy from the Lord., in all situations. Hudson?s
