Greater Riches

Yesterday while perusing some of my old books with my friend and mentor, Paul Collet, I came across a powerful picture(s) in the book C. T. Studd, Cricketeer and Pioneer by Norman P. Grubb.
You can't read the captions above or below the picture(s) so I'll print them here. Remember that C. T. Studd came from a wealthy background and was called by God to give it all up and leave the comforts of home for the mission field.

"Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt."
Tedworth House, Wiltshire, the home of C. T.'s boyhood.
(inset: C. T. in the heart of Africa in later years)
Note: The BLOGGER ROBBER didn't like the impact for Christ that this picture of C. T. Studd's mansion where he grew up...and the mud hut where he chose to live in dark Africa...was having SO he somehow caused the picture to disappear. I will post it again on Monday, April 2nd.

  1. Hebrews13: 13&14
    "Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.
    For here we have no continuing city, but we seek one to come."

    Betty and I have had to bear so much reproach in the last few months, David, that sometimes it has been unbearable!

    Thank you for this posting.. ..from Terry
