Samuel Pearce: a call to submission to the will of God

I have spent most of this week working on the critical edition of Andrew Fuller's life of his dear friend Samuel Pearce (1766-1799). There is so much instruction in the life of that dear man. Like this one line when he was dying, from a letter to Fuller: "how can I be a Christian, and not submit to God?" (April 18, 1799) Think: a seemingly random line written by a dying man over two hundred years ago has such profound meaning for us today. In one line he captures a key aspect of the heart of our faith.
