Studd: prime qualifications

Thursday, August 8, 2019
    Feast of Dominic, Priest, Founder of the Order of Preachers, 1221
    Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.
    —Romans 12:1-3 (NIV)
    A lost reputation is the best degree for Christ’s service.
    ... C. T. Studd (1860-1931), C. T. Studd—Cricketer and Pioneer [1933], Norman P. Grubb, World-Wide Revival Prayer Movement, 1947, p. 164 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 12:1-3; Ps. 69:7-9; Matt. 9:10-12; Luke 16:15; John 2:25; Rom. 15:3; 2 Cor. 8:9; Phil. 2:3,5-7; Heb. 2:17-18; 1 Pet. 3:4; 5:5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I abandon my good name and ambition for Your sake.
