“God’s work, done God’s way,
will never lack God’s support.”
— Hudson Taylor, 1832 – 1905
An evident work of God is occurring in our day—many believers in Yeshua are returning to an appreciation and acceptance of the whole Bible as the inspired word of God and as His will for their lives. Popularly referred to as the “Messianic Movement,” this “grass roots” awakening has resulted in the formation of Bible study groups, home fellowships, congregations, and communities all over the world where people are eager to learn about how the Torah (Genesis–Deuteronomy) is the foundation upon which the entire Scriptures stand.
Finding in the Torah a pattern of righteous living that fits hand-in-hand with the life and message of Yeshua and His Apostles, thousands of people have experienced a renewed awakening of their faith and walk with God.
But no movement can be sustained for long without teachers and leaders who are trained to handle the word of God accurately. Paul instructed Timothy:
“The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” (2Tim 2:2)
This is the burden and goal of TRI, to be part of God’s work in our times by providing quality, Biblically based education.
When God gave His instructions to Moses about building the Mishkan (Tabernacle), He told him that it was to be built by the people themselves:
“Let them construct a sanctuary for Me, that I may dwell among them.” (Exodus 25:8)
And this is what the people did. All who had “willing hearts” (Ex 35:22) brought the materials required to build the Mishkan. The people were so enthusiastic about building the Mishkan that Moses eventually had to restrain them from contributing more of their goods because enough had already been given (Ex 36:6).
So God’s way of accomplishing His designs is to move the hearts of His people to do His will, and to do so with joy.
The same is true for us at TorahResource. We can only accomplish the work God has given us to do as He stirs the hearts of people to join with us and support our efforts.
The phrase, “God’s work, done God’s way, never lacks God’s support,” was made famous by Hudson Taylor, the missionary who pioneered outreach to China, and who founded the Inland China Mission. His remarkable life of faith gives testimony to the fact that God will supply the needs for the work He intends to accomplish.
At TorahResource, we are committed to this same principle. Our course of action is quite simple: First, we will continually petition God to meet our needs, and such prayer will be a top priority. Second, we will make our needs known to those who have committed themselves to partner with us in this work. Third, we will wait upon God to see how He supplies our needs and continue on accordingly.
Moreover, as God does supply our needs, we will take this as ongoing confirmation that He intends us to continue on in the work He has given us to do. We are committed, therefore, not to borrow money nor to incur debt of any kind. The work of TorahResource will continue and expand only as God supplies our needs to do so.
