Though C.T. Studd passed away in 1931, his white-hot zealousness can still be felt today. He was one of the “Cambridge Seven”, seven men who offered themselves for missionary service to Hudson Taylor. During his service in China, C.T. Studd inherited a large inheritance from his father. He and his wife eventually decided to give it all away for work in missions and ministry work. His sacrifice was not just with money. Years later he went to present day Sudan and spread the gospel there until he died. C.T. Studd also had a way with words. His poetry and quotes are inspiring and deep.
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.
And when I am dying, how happy I’ll be,
If the lamp of my life has been burned out for Thee
