1952-10 Alone With God.jpg

Alone With God

By George B. Watson

Over and over, deeper and deeper, do we have to learn the meaning of God’s words, until the faint perceptions we first had of them seem as dewdrops compared with the fathomless ocean we find in them at the last.

“And he was left alone, and there wrestled a man with him until the break of day.”

All elect souls pass many times this station of aloneness with God, and they find that the wrestling always lasts till the breaking of the day.

We have to be alone with God in finding personal salvation. Others may be used as instruments …

The Secret Of Christian Experience

By Dr. John G. Mitchell

Preached at the Sunday Morning Service of The Moody Church on February 8, 1953.

What is real, genuine Christian experience?

I might take an example from any chapter of the book of Philippians which would give us the secret of Christian experience. I could take chapter 1, verses 20 and 21: “So now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”

I know we generally quote that as “for me to live is Christ,” but it is really, “for me …

Christ As Creator

By Dr. Charles A. Porter

We have often been reminded that the four Gospel accounts, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John present four different aspects of the character and ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ. In Matthew, which was written with special emphasis for the Jew, He is seen as the King of Israel. The genealogy of the first Gospel takes us to David and Abraham to prove His right to the throne. In Mark’s Gospel there is no genealogy as there Christ is set forth as the Servant of Jehovah. A servant would have no genealogy! “Straightway, immediately, forthwith” and “anon” are the words that …

Transformed And Transfigured, Or Conformed And Disfigured

By Rev. Paul Rader

“Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect, will of God.”—Romans 12:2

Now, here’s an exact mathematical proposition, where you can get the answer and prove it. “Be not conformed to this world.” He tells you how—“by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect, will of God.”

The artist that is drawing a good picture refers very often to the model. Here is a man painting a mountain scene, so …

Blowing The Silver Trumpets

By Anonymous

“And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Make thee two trumpets of silver: of a whole piece shalt thou make them.”—Numbers 10:1–2

What is it that we need first and most, if the months that lie ahead of us, if the Lord will, are to be fruitful in the things that are pleasing to God? How are we to fulfill the relationship of life, and in them adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things? What is it that lies at the basis of all spiritual life and service, and without which we can only fail in every …

The Trail Of Tears

By Dr. S. Franklin Logsdon

“Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”—Psalm 30:5

It is noteworthy that the Word of God has much to say about weeping—about the matter of tears. You would be a very unusual person indeed if you had never shed a tear, because tears stain the faces of folk in every clime, in every age.

There is a certain eloquence to tears. Nor are they necessarily an indication of weakness. Visualize, if you will, the iron Napoleon as he witnessed his seemingly interminable troops marching into the Prussian campaign. Sparkling emotion became liquid on his cheeks. …

The Purpose Of Bethlehem

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Sermon preached by Pastor Alan Redpath in The Moody Church on Sunday morning, December 22, 1957.

“But when the fulness of time was come, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law that he might redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.”—Galatians 4:4–5

These verses come right in the center of a tremendous argument which Paul was bringing to the Christians in Galatia. Perhaps you remember that he was so deeply concerned for them because even though they were believers, they were in great danger of being …

Dwight L. Moody Is Dead

The New York Times
December 23, 1899

DWIGHT L. MOODY IS DEAD

Succumbs at His East Northfield (Mass.) Home to Overwork.

HE MEETS HIS FATE CALMLY

When the End Was Near He Said: “The World is Receding and Heaven Opening”

East Northfield, Mass., December 22, 1899—With the words “God is calling me,” Dwight L. Moody, the Evangelist, died at his home here at noon to-day. His passing was as gentle as could be wished for. His family were gathered at his bedside, and the dying man’s last moments were spent in comforting them. Besides the family there were present also …

The Virgin Birth Of Christ

By Rev. Paul Rader

“And, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.”—Matthew 2:9

The virgin’s child; the Father’s Only Begotten Son: Immanuel! God with us! Let all the people clap their hands and shout for joy! Oh, the depths of meaning to mankind in that God-given name Immanuel! Heaven and Earth come together at His advent. An angel from the throne of God, suddenly coming upon the lowly shepherds at night, announces this stupendous event, while the light of God shines round about them. No wonder they were …

Christmas & COVID

By Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

Why COVID-19 Is Not The Last Pandemic

To mask or not to mask? To vaccinate or not? Should vaccinations be mandatory or a matter of personal choice? Should children be required to wear masks at school? Even after this variant or any other has run its course, what comes next? I reply, plenty. With overwhelming questions like these, the celebration of Christ’s birth at Christmas doesn’t seem to have any relevance to the realities we face.

Jesus predicted pandemics like this, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines …
