A New Story About Mr. Moody

By John Langston

Mr. John Langston, who, as a boy, remembers Mr. Moody’s first work in Chicago, and attended the North Market Street Sunday School, gave a very interesting description of Mr. Moody’s recruiting methods. He said:

“It is something to be born again, and I found Jesus back in the Illinois Street mission through the instrumentality of my old teacher, George Roberts, who went home to Glory during this present year. I bless the day when George talked to me after school, and you teachers have a splendid opportunity, better than any pastor could have.

“I want to go back to the …

Dwelling In Beulah Land

By Rev. Paul Rader

The land which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.” —Numbers 14:7

Our inheritance in Christ Jesus is more than we can ask or think. Since He has so richly provided for us, it behooves us to believe and accept His provisions. “Must I go on in this up and down life?” cried a young man the other night as he threw himself to his knees in a struggle with the old flesh. What joy to point the struggling Christian to the Beulah Land of the soul: a place of rest and victory in the Holy …

The Transformed Life

By Rev. Paul Rader

Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.” —Romans 12:2

Two little girls were washing the dishes one day. One of them was murmuring over her task, when the other said, “Let’s think about what we are going to get for Christmas, and doin’ the dishes won’t hurt so much.”

There is a law here in this little incident that is worthy of our close attention. It is the law of transformation by renewing. Are we to let circumstances, moods, conditions, rule us and weigh us down, or are we to find this spiritual law of transformation by renewal? …

God's Move

By Rev. Paul Rader

Thy right hand, O, Lord, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.” —Exodus 15:6

How glorious in power is the hand that in the beginning created the heavens and the earth. How glorious in power the hand that made the sun, whose flames leap into space 250,000 miles, a sun with plenty of heat and light, so much given off and only a small part of it used by a universe.

How bounteous the makings of this hand that gives light and warmth. What strength in this hand that holds the …

Comments on 1 Thessalonians 5

By Rev. Paul Rader

“Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.”

I don’t know what you are drunk with, but I know many people are drunk with a great many things today—some staggering ideals, some colossal foolishness, or something else. There is more in this word “sober” than simply abstaining from some intoxicating liquor. It is a wonderful thing to have a sober mind and not let yourself be carried away by the drunken spirit of our day, but to stand with Jesus Christ, while the tide is going the other way. Ask God for a …

Renewed Vision

By Rev. Paul Rader

And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.” —Matthew 5:41

Go with him twain.” I call your earnest attention to these words. I find in them a characteristic mark of a very unique people. The Word of God says that He desires a peculiar people, zealous of good works. The characteristic mark then, of this peculiar people, is this, if a man compels them to go a mile, they will go with him twain. That is, they do not only what they are expected to do, but, because of grace given, they do the unexpected. …

The Charmed Life

By Rev. Paul Rader

This is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” —1 John 5:4

A great struggle for national life is on. In belligerent days, if we are not careful, our tendency will be to fight our way, and forget that we have one who has already won the victory. It is ours but to believe that He has already conquered all our foes. How often we forget this, and struggle.

Beloved, ours is a charmed life. We have a shepherd, we have one who cares, we have one who begs us to cast all our cares upon Him. As …

Compel Them To Come In

By Rev. Paul Rader

Compel them to come in” —Luke 14:23

These words from the lips of our Lord are recorded by Luke in the fourteenth chapter of his Gospel and the twenty-third verse.

We are using these words as a motto for this, our third annual Cedar Lake Conference. Jesus used these words as He spake the parable of the Great Supper.

He used them in answer to the remark of one of the guests seated around the table, where He had been invited to take Sunday dinner by one of the chiefs of the Pharisees. He had taken the opportunity which this …

God's Nets

By Rev. Paul Rader

Thou broughtest us into the net” —Psalm 66:11

That is a very queer text for a sermon on a life of Victory; but if you will see the truth I wish to bring to you, you will see that the way into freedom and victory is sometimes through a net. So I want to take some examples that God Himself has used, to show you how He brings us to victory. Many of you seek a life of victory, but you do not seek to know God’s way of bringing you into a life of victory.

When I started to …

We Persuade Men

By Rev. Paul Rader

Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men” —2 Corinthians 5:11

Now when God picked out Abraham as the Father of the Faithful, and the one to be the head of His chosen people, the Jews, He took a look at his faith, tested that faith, and found that Abraham would mind Him. Abraham would obey without argument. He picked him, too, as He said, because “I know him, that he will command his children after him.”

Abraham’s children had to mind. Has the great truth that you will have to suffer for your disobedience to God ever …
