A Lesson On Humility

By Dr. Alan Redpath

In our series of messages on the subject “Learning from the Lessons of Our Lord,” we turn to Matthew 18:3–4 to learn a lesson on the subject of humility.

And Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, [“turn” in the ASV] and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”

It is well to remind ourselves, in the presence of God, of the setting upon which our Lord Jesus based this illustration. The …

A Lesson On Forgiveness

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, until seven times: but, until seventy times seven.” —Matthew 18:21–22

In the opening part of Matthew, chapter 18, our Lord was speaking to His disciples about greatness in the kingdom. He had spoken to them about the heart of a child as an example of greatness. They were quite mystified about this kingdom He was going to set up. It seemed to them that He had spoken about …

The Grand Finale

By Dr. Alan Redpath

In accordance with his agreement with the Persian king, Nehemiah had returned to the court upon the completion of the building of the wall. Twelve years later, seeking renewed permission, he returned to Jerusalem. The last chapter of this amazing record in the Word of God reveals to us the unswerving loyalty of Nehemiah to his God, right through to the very end.

I came to Jerusalem and I understood…” (verse 7).

Those few words are the clue to the whole zeal and character of this man Nehemiah. He came to Jerusalem, the place from which all divine strategy in …

Toward Spiritual Maturity

By Dr. Alan Redpath

A series by Pastor Alan Redpath given over the course of 1958.

Part 1: Some Practical Hints on the Quiet Time (January 1958: The Moody Church News, Volume 43 Number 01)

We all know, theoretically at least, that the Christian life can only grow as it cultivates the habit of prayer, and that prayer must be regular and disciplined if it is to be vital. That is why it is that such importance is placed on the “Quiet Time” by all who know the secret of growth in Christ. I want, in a short series of articles on this subject, …

A Lesson On Devotion

By Dr. Alan Redpath

The story in Luke 7:36–50 which we are now to consider, is quite unique in all the four Gospels. There is one very much like it which is recounted by Matthew and Mark which took place much later in the ministry of our Lord, when a woman poured a box of precious ointment upon His head, and then broke the box. In John 11 she is identified as Mary of Bethany.

Here we meet in this chapter two people—Simon a Pharisee, and a woman which is called a sinner, as Luke describes her. They are in the same house, but …

A Lesson On Prayer

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Sermon preached by Pastor Alan Redpath on Sunday, June 15, 1958.

Our subject is prayer, and I feel that within Psalm 86 are some fundamental lessons on this great theme that everyone of us needs to learn. It is uncertain when David actually wrote these words; it may have been when he was being hunted by Saul, or maybe when he was betrayed by Absalom. This much I do know it was at a time of great crisis, perplexity and affliction in his life, when he was being sorely tested and tried, when it seemed that but for God he …

Hallelujah Anyway!

By Dr. Alan Redpath

I want you to know brethren, that what I have gone through has resulted in the furtherance of the gospel.”—Philippians 1:12 (Weymouth translation)

What I have gone through.” What tremendously suggestive words these are, and how personal they are to everybody, but in so many different ways. Has there been for you a crushing bereavement which has broken your heart, or has it been a fiery trial of temptation that has threatened to make shipwreck of your testimony? Has it been a broken friendship, shattered hope, an unexpected and unwanted change in circumstances of life? Or some physical suffering, such …
