QUOTE (Eric Liddell) – Feb 21

February 21, 2014

English: Eric Liddell in Paris Olympic Games M...

“I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Creator, infinitely holy and loving, who has a plan for the world, a plan for my life, and some daily work for me to do. I believe in Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God, as Example, Lord, and Savior. I believe in the Holy Spirit who is able to guide my life so that I may know God’s will; and I am prepared to allow him to guide and control my life. I believe in God’s law that I should love the Lord my God with all my heart, and with all my soul, and with all my mind, and with all my strength; and my neighbor as myself. I believe it is God’s will that the whole world should be without any barriers of race, color, class, or anything else that breaks the spirit of fellowship. To believe means to believe with the mind and heart, to accept, and to act accordingly on that basis.”
Eric Liddell

In honor of Eric Liddell, Scottish Olympic champion runner portrayed in the film “Chariots of Fire” and missionary to China, who died of a brain tumor on this day in 1945 while imprisoned by the Japanese during WWII.

  1. what a great testimony Eric’s life was to God! So good to read it again…makes me want to watch the movie again!


  2. Reblogged this on Laying Foundations and commented:
    Eric Liddell was a true missionary, and a man worth looking up to. He was an incredible athlete. More than that he was an incredible Christian. He truly ran his race to receive the prize, and I expect that he shall.


    • Thanks for the reblog. It is very much appreciated.
      God Bless!

      • Not a problem! I’ve always liked Liddell.


  3. I taught a descendant of Eric Liddell a few years back in my class here in Ottawa, Canada, so this quote was especially meaningful to me. Eric’s wife settled in Toronto and continued to faithfully serve the Lord.


    • That is a very cool connection. I did not know that Eric’s wife come to Canada. That’s for you comments.
      God Bless!
