Tell others about Jesus like George Müller did:

Though not all Christians are called to the ministry of an Evangelist, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________

 

 The amazing issue of his life does not lie in what he did, but in how he accomplished it.  

Obstacle to Comfort is a 55-minute video on the life of George Muller of Bristol.  The man became a legend in his own generation.  He was the builder of schools, a supporter of missions and a father to some 10,000 orphans.  The amazing issue of his life does not lie in what he did, but in how he accomplished it.  

He refused to inform anybody concerning his needs, mentioning them only to God, in private, on his knees. 

He operated by faith.  He relied solely on God to meet all his needs.  He refused to accept any donations from unbelievers, and when he started his scriptural knowledge Institution to accomplish these tasks, between him and his partner they possessed no more than one shilling, or twelve pence.  He refused to inform anybody concerning his needs, mentioning them only to God, in private, on his knees.  But look at what he accomplished.

The schools collectively had 121,683 students...The orphanage... accommodated the needs of 10,000 orphans. 

In reviewing the 63 years he spent in a faith ministry, the results are staggering.  The schools collectively had 121,683 students.  The orphanage had five mammoth buildings.  He accommodated the needs of 10,000 orphans.  It is believed that 2,813 orphans left the institution as believers, and they in turn led thousands more to Christ.  It is believed that of the 2,000 students in the orphanage, when Mr. Muller closed his diary, 609 of them were believers.

Sixty-three foreign missionaries were sent out from his church alone. 

The Institution also distributed over 281,000 Bibles, nearly 1.5 million New Testaments, and over 111 million tracts.  Several hundred missionaries received financial assistance, totaling nearly £260,000.  Sixty-three foreign missionaries were sent out from his church alone.  He built ten other churches - six of which were self-supporting at the time of his death. __________________________________
