A Man of Many Parts
DR. W. Y. FULLERTON, friend and biographer of
C. H. SPURGEON, Colleague with MANTON SMITH
in many Evangelistic Tours, Keswick Conference speaker,
Secretary of the Baptist My. Society, Lecturer,
Author, etc., was converted when 13 years of age.
Describing this happy event, he said: "It
Sunday afternoon when Mr. Williamson was giving an
address to the Sunday School. He said many things, no
doubt; but I can remember only one sentence, and that
was the living word for me: All you have to do to be saved
is to take God's
gift, and say, "Thank You."
Here was a
new and a great light. Hitherto I had been trying to
get God to take my gift, and trying to make it great
enough to be worthy of His acceptance; and, lo! it was I
who had to take, and it was His to give. Simply and
quietly that Sunday afternoon my heart turned to God,
and I took the gift, for which I have been trying to say
Thank You ever since."
At another time, Dr. Fullerton put it this way: "On
the 18th of July, 1870, the Pope declared himself
fallible. On the 19th of July, 1870, France went to war
with Germany. On the 20th of July, 1870, I rested on the
infallible Word of God, and
entered into eternal peace.
Of these three events the third to me was the greatest."
He was suddenly called Home in 1932.
