On July 11, 1924, Eric Liddell (李爱锐) became the first China-born athlete to win an Olympic gold medal. After refusing to run on Sunday in his best event, Liddell later set a world record while running a much longer event. Just before that race, a friend slipped him a note saying, “He that honors me, him will I honor,” a paraphrase of 1 Samuel 2:30. Liddell returned to China as a missionary in 1925, spending 12 years in Tianjin teaching at a Chinese boys’ school, 6 years in Xiaochang as a rural evangelist, and his final years in Weifang in a Japanese prison camp. Pray for Chinese Christians to emulate Liddell in striving to be faithful and just in all circumstances. Luke 16:10
