    This book is valuable It is not a page turner But it will get you thinking about the type of power or weakness it takes to abide in the Almighty The biography is truely remarkable but as the title suggests, it is the understanding that Hudson Taylor arrived at that is worththan just a recounting of events He learned, as far as I can tell, to truely abide in Christ The one line that stood out the most to me was this, written to his sister How great seemed my mistake in wishing This book is valuable It is not a page turner But it will get you thinking about the type of power or weakness it takes to abide in the Almighty The biography is truely remarkable but as the title suggests, it is the understanding that Hudson Taylor arrived at that is worththan just a recounting of events He learned, as far as I can tell, to truely abide in Christ The one line that stood out the most to me was this, written to his sister How great seemed my mistake in wishing to get the sap, the fullness out of Him The vine is not the root merely, but all root, stem, branches, twigs, leaves, flowers, and fruit When I pair that understanding with the scripture about Jesus as the vine John 15 5 as well as the fruit of the Spirit Galations 5 22 , it is so valuable Our relationship to Him and in Him takes on new meaning If you are wondering what it would look like to rest in the Lord, while being about His work, read this book

    What a life J Hudson Taylor is one of my heroes My wife and I were so moved by this life of faith as we read it in this particular book that we unanimously decided to name our first son after him The fact that the book was written by his grandson just makes it that mucheffective.

    Another amazing story of a great saint who has gone before us Hudson Taylor s life is an inspiration and wonderful example of what it means to follow the call of God and not look back His story is also convicting I fear this generation of believers, myself included, has prized comfort, entertainment, and safety far too greatly, perhaps at the cost of reaching the lost and to the jealousy of our loving, suffering Savior There is a need for us to give ourselves for the life of the world as Another amazing story of a great saint who has gone before us Hudson Taylor s life is an inspiration and wonderful example of what it means to follow the call of God and not look back His story is also convicting I fear this generation of believers, myself included, has prized comfort, entertainment, and safety far too greatly, perhaps at the cost of reaching the lost and to the jealousy of our loving, suffering Savior There is a need for us to give ourselves for the life of the world as He gave His flesh for the feeding of the lifeless and of living souls whose life can only be nourished by the same life giving Bread An easy going non self denying life will never be one of power Fruit bearing involves cross bearing Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone We know how the Lord became fruitful not by bearing His cross merely, but by dying on it Do we know much of fellowship with Him in this There are not two Christs an easy going one for easy going Christians, and a suffering, toiling one for exceptional believers There is only one Christ Are you willing to abide in Him, and thus to bear much fruit H.T

Taylor, Dr and Mrs Howard 2013 05 25 Hudson Taylor s Spiritual Secret pp 223 224 Kindle Edition I am so glad I found this book I only wish I could belike Hudson Taylor Each time I read his story I ask God to help me learn the secret of how to take time to be closer to Him

    This book will persist in my book top 5 books for eternity I expect I suppose there is somewhat of a recency bias I started the book expecting to read a missionary biography of a major missionary of China What I read was account after account of a mighty God who supplies every need and answers the specific prayers of his children who ask on Jesus s account.The account is written by his son daughter in law based in a narration of his and other s personal letters The picture of Hudson Taylor This book will persist in my book top 5 books for eternity I expect I suppose there is somewhat of a recency bias I started the book expecting to read a missionary biography of a major missionary of China What I read was account after account of a mighty God who supplies every need and answers the specific prayers of his children who ask on Jesus s account.The account is written by his son daughter in law based in a narration of his and other s personal letters The picture of Hudson Taylor isrosy than reality but it scarcely matters because the main character becomes Jesus in whom Hudson trusts fully And Jesus isn t just a powerful prayer answer but a fountain of daily joy and rest that says to Hudson and all come and drink, and you ll never be thirsty and Hudson does.Epilogue So what is Hudson Taylor s Spiritual Secret That deep into his ministry, after a life thus far of prayer and reliance on God for all needs, he ran low on faith and wanted to seeholiness in his life He tried to muster it up, pray , study , serve , and sin less He gave it his everything to havefaith From hereforth I quote from the book, which quotes Hudson s letters All the time I felt assured that there was in Christ all I needed, but the practical question was how to get it OUT He was rich truly, but I was poor He was strong, but I weak I knew full well that there was in the root, the stem, abundant fatness, but how to get it into my puny little branch was the question As gradually light dawned, I saw that faith was the only requisite was the hand to lay hold on His fullness and make it mine But I had not this faith I strove for faith, but it would not come I tried to exercise it, but in vain Seeingandthe wondrous supply of grace laid up in Jesus, the fullness of our precious Savior, my guilt and helplessness seemed to increase Sins committed appeared but as trifles compared with the sin of unbelief which was their cause, which could not or would not take God at His word, but rather made Him a liar Unbelief was I felt THE damning sin of the world yet I indulged in it I prayed for faith, but it came not What was I to do When my agony of soul was at its height, a sentence in a letter from dear McCarthy was used to remove the scales from my eyes, and the Spirit of God revealed to me the truth of our ONENESS WITH JESUS as I had never know in before McCarthy, who had been much exercised by the same sense of failure but saw the light before I did, wrote I quote from memory But how to get faith strengthened Not by striving after faith, but by resting on the Faithful One As I read, I saw it all If we believe not, he abideth faithful I looked to Jesus and saw and when I saw, oh, how joy flowed that He had said, I will never leave thee Ah, THERE is rest I thought I have striven in vain to rest in Him I ll strive noFor has not HE promised to abide with ME never to leave me, never to fail me And, dearie, HE NEVER WILL

    This is an outstanding book It was writtenthan 80 years ago, and at times feels dated in style For example, the numerous quotations from letters to and from Hudson Taylor tell much of the story in a manner of 150 years ago Ultimately, I think it was good for me to have the patience to read through some of those sections, which may not have been exciting but were certainly worthwhile and very important This is book that I would recommend to anyone who is actually wanting to follow Jesus This is an outstanding book It was writtenthan 80 years ago, and at times feels dated in style For example, the numerous quotations from letters to and from Hudson Taylor tell much of the story in a manner of 150 years ago Ultimately, I think it was good for me to have the patience to read through some of those sections, which may not have been exciting but were certainly worthwhile and very important This is book that I would recommend to anyone who is actually wanting to follow Jesus as Lord

    I had heard much about Hudson Taylor but hadn t read this book Hudson Taylor s Spiritual Secret is no secret Sincere devoted time to prayer and God s Word led to remarkable funding and the call of missionaries for the China Inland Mission On a side note it was interesting for me to read how George Muller and D.L Moody impacted Taylor and the C.I.M.There are several worthwhile quotes that are highlighted in my copy.
