“I hated my sin. I felt like there was nothing I so much desired in this world as holiness. But the more I pursued and strove after it, the more it eluded my grasp.”
Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Those words came from Hudson Taylor, a pioneer missionary to China, known for his faith and devotion. But it bothered him that he still gave in to sin.
“Often I am tempted to think that one so full of sin cannot be a child of God at all.”
Nancy: Then a friend gave him this quote from a book called Christ is All.
“The Lord Jesus received is holiness begun. The Lord Jesus cherished is holiness advancing. The Lord Jesus counted upon as never absent would be holiness complete.”
Nancy: Hudson Taylor took a new look at Christ and His holiness. Maybe you need to do the same thing. As you focus on Jesus instead of your own abilities, you’ll be transformed into His image.
