32 - George Wishart- Scotland's Forgotten Forerunner
George Wishart lived just 33 years yet he made a significant impact on Scotland through his Godly life and powerful preaching. He also mentored and trained the man who would solidify and carry forward the Scottish Reformation: John Knox.
John Knox started his ministry as a two handed sword carrier to protect George Wishart, but after his death he picked up the mantle. He would drive the Scottish reformation forward through his boldness, fearlessness and resolute trust in God.
Mary Queen of Scots had a fearsome reputation, causing many a strong man to wilt in her presence, but this was not true of John Knox. Their encounter that took place in Holyrood Palace stands to us as an example, inspiring courage in the face of danger and peril.
