Hudson Taylor was scheduled to speak at a large church in Melbourne, Australia. The moderator of the service introduced the missionary in eloquent and glowing terms. He told the large congregation all that Taylor had accomplished in China, and then presented him as “our illustrious guest.” Taylor stood quietly for a moment, and then opened his message by saying, “Dear friends, I am the little servant of an illustrious Master.”
As we look ahead and contemplate the storms that may be just over the horizon and as we consider what great things God may desire to see accomplished in us and through us, we are going to have to remember that we are merely little servants of an illustrious Master!
