Soul Surgery: Part 1

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Part 1 of a 9-part series by Pastor Alan Redpath given over the course of 1959.

The Challenge And Significance Of Personal Testimony

What generally passes for personal work is a double misnomer, for it does not really take account of the individual nor is it really work. Along with Bible study and prayer we include personal work  as one of the three primary essentials of the Christian life. But are we not thankful in our hearts that those to whom we recommend these practices do not know how shadowy is their presence in our own living: Personal Work, Bible …

Wanted: A Venture of Faith

By Eric Crichton

In the February issue of Moody Monthly there appeared an article entitled “The State of the Church,” written by A.W. Tozer, Billy Graham, J.O. Percy, David Otis Fuller and one or two others. The comments of these men in regard to this subject were very significant, especially Dr. Graham’s, where he asks, “Can the church recapture the faith, courage, enthusiasm, joy, love, unity, discipline, and cross-bearing that so characterized the early followers of Christ? Many doubt it—many think we have gone too far and that our minds are becoming darkened, our conscience hardened and our will paralyzed.”

In Mark 9:14-29 …

The Holy Ghost Said

By Rev. Paul Rader

“The Holy Ghost said.”—Acts 13:2

He speaks. Oh that the Church of today would hear His voice! He is not an influence. He is a Person speaking. In this instance cited, He said, “Separate me Barnabas and Paul for the work whereunto I have called them” (verse 2). The work is in His hands and the men must be also.

The work is in His hands still, but where are the separated men? What a wealth of work waits to be done! The fields are white to harvest, but where are the reapers?

It is from just such group prayer …

To Obey is Better than Sacrifice

By Rev. Vance Havner, D.D.

Message given at The Moody Church by Rev. Vance Havner, D.D. of Greensboro, N.C.

Turn to the 15th chapter of 1 Samuel and I want to read about King Saul and a very tragic chapter in his life.

“Samuel also said unto Saul, The Lord sent me to anoint thee to be king over his people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. …

A Lesson On Faith

By Dr. Alan Redpath

As we continue our series, “Learning from the Lessons of our Lord,” we come to a lesson on faith from Matthew 15:21–31. This particular incident occurred at a very significant moment in the ministry of our Lord. It had become perfectly clear that as the Messiah of the Jewish people, He was being rejected, His ministry was being refused; and putting together the account of this incident given to us by Matthew and by Mark, we find that He departed, seeking out a house for rest, and went into the coast of Tyre and Sidon.

That departure seems to have …

Victorious—Christian Living in the Home

By Roy A. Brehm

Christian parents will do well to be on the lookout for every indication of the child’s growth in grace. At the family worship time, their interest, questions, responsiveness and prayers will reveal whether they are making progress, seemingly standing still or drifting backward.

In the Scriptures, God clearly shows His ideal for each of His children to be unceasing progress and growth in grace. In the First Epistle of John, chapter two, the Apostle writes to three classes of Christians: little children, young men and fathers. No doubt there were some of each of those three age groups among his …

Three Men

By Dr. P.W. Philpott

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.”—1 Corinthians 2:14–15

“And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.”—1 Corinthians 3:1–2

It is obvious to all …

In Memory of Our Beloved Dr. Philpott

By Anonymous

On April 1, 1957, in his 92nd year, Dr. P.W. Philpott, former pastor of The Moody Church, was called home to be with the Lord. The news of Dr. Philpott’s passing was received with a deep sense of personal loss by all the members of The Moody Church. Though conscious of this loss, nevertheless, we do regard his homegoing as a glorious triumph and an hour of great victory.

From the time that Dr. Philpott was saved as a young man of eighteen, the Lord directed his steps towards the Gospel ministry. From that early beginning until the very end …

The Challenge Of A Metropolitan Church

By Dr. Alan Redpath

The geographical location of a metropolitan church undoubtedly means that it faces peculiar difficulties which are not so prominent in the life of a fellowship whose members live within the immediate radius of the church building. Nevertheless, there are basic principles of church testimony which apply regardless of any geographical location. For a metropolitan community to become no more than a preaching station in which a large number of people assemble to listen to a preacher and to be spectators of a program, rather than to be personally committed to the task of evangelism, is to spell the doom of …

As He

By Dr. Alan Redpath

The Apostle John seems very fond of these two words. Six times in his first epistle he uses these two words. He uses them in trying to show the believer’s relation to the blessed Lord Jesus. The seventh verse of this first epistle reads like this: “But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light,” etc. The natural heart cries out, “How can this be, seeing He is the Son of God?” Yes, He was the second person of the glorious Trinity; but when He was baptized in Jordan the Holy Spirit came upon Him. You …
