There’s an old saying which states behind every good man there is a good woman. Now that may or may not be strictly true, but let me suggest that behind every saint that has dared to believe GOD and attempt great things for Him, there are others that have gone before and helped inspire them to do just that.
For example, Joshua had Moses and Elisha had Elijah. In both these cases it could be argued that the students were more successful than their masters. May we too, humbly learn at the feet of great saints in our day, so that we may accomplish the “greater works” Jesus said we would do as disciples of the Most High GOD.
Here is a list of the saints that have most impacted my life. I hope it will help inspire those who have never read these giants of faith and galvanise them into action for GOD. The lessons of these saints have stayed with me through the years. In each case I can point to life changing breakthroughs which occurred as a direct result of reading their works. These disciples will change your life if you allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you through their examples, and I still return to their books (especially Watchman Nee) to this day.
