Christ Alone

William Carey, the great missionary pioneer who translated the Bible into forty languages said this:

I am this day 70 years old, a monument of Divine mercy and goodness, though on review of my life I find much, very much, for which I ought to be humbled in the dust; my direct and positive sins are innumerable, my negligence in the Lord’s work has been great, I have not promoted his cause, nor sought his glory and honor as I ought.  Notwithstanding all this, I am spared till now, and am still retained in his work.  I trust for acceptance with Him to the blood of Christ alone.

Letter to Jabez Carey, in James Culross, William Carey (New York: A.C. Armstrong and Son, 1882), 208.
