Taylor: the source of power

Friday, June 26, 2020
    [Peter:] “These men are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.’”
    —Acts 2:15-17 (NIV)
    Since the days before Pentecost, has the whole church ever put aside every other work and waited upon Him for ten days, that [the Spirit’s] power might be manifested? ... We give too much attention to method and machinery and resources, and too little to the source of power.
    ... J. Hudson Taylor (1832-1905), “The Source of Power for Christian Missions”, in The Missionary Review of the World, v. LIII, Missionary Review Publishing Co., Inc., 1930, p. 516 (see the book)
    See also Acts 2:15-17; 1:4-5; 4:31; 1 Thess. 1:4-5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your gift of the Holy Spirit alone makes the mission of the church possible.
