Not You But God: The Acid Test Of The Exchanged Life

By Anonymous

The expression “The Exchanged Life” has become familiar to us here at The Moody Church for it constitutes the emphasis of the regular ministry of this church. It crystallizes a great truth which has had revolutionary effects in the lives of many whose hearts have been gripped by this principle. In fact, it has brought us into a new principle of life entirely where we have discovered that “it is no longer I, but Christ,” and where we have discovered that the thing that counts is not our struggling and whipping the flesh to bring it into line, but rather …

The Decline Of Good Reading

By A.W. Tozer

The reading habits of the average evangelical Christian in the United States, as far as I have been able to observe them, are so wretchedly bad as to actually arrest the spiritual development of the individual believer and block the progress of the faith he professes to hold.

So powerful is the effect of the printed page on human character that the reading of good books is not only a privilege but an obligation, and the habitual reading of poor ones a positive tragedy.

Of course I do not here refer to the output of the yellow press. I think …

Direction Decides Destiny

By Dr. Alan Redpath

The key verse of this passage is 1 Corinthians 1:18 in which there is a change of tense in the R.V.: “For the preaching of the cross is to them that are perishing foolishness; but unto us that are being saved, it is the power of God.”

1. The Two Conditions

Here Paul highlights for us two contrasting experiences of life: being saved and perishing. Neither of them is static, and both suggest movement, a journey, a pilgrimage. Both of them, however, are inclusive of the experiences of us all, and the category to which each one of us belongs …

Power For Service

By Dr. Alan Redpath

“Thus saith the Lord of hosts, If thou wilt walk in my way, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my court; and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by.”—Zechariah 3:7

The Revised Version of the last phrase reads thus: I will keep thee a place of access among those that stand by.”

How we need to grow in the understanding of the Word of God! The real Christian life, the Christ-like life, is that which is grasping constantly, day by day, by the …

Accused But Vindicated

By Dr. Alan Redpath

“He shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.”—Zechariah 3:1

The immediate purpose of this vision given to the prophet is not hard to discover. Joshua, the priest in tattered garments is a picture of the Jewish people in their distress following the many years of captivity. He is ministering before the Lord in robes unfitted for his work. The old adversary of God’s people, the devil, chooses that moment to resist them and seeks to turn away God’s favor from them, but that same …

A Lesson On Discipleship

By Dr. Alan Redpath

A sermon preached by Pastor Alan Redpath on Sunday, March 29, 1959.

In this passage from the Word of God, we find three very interesting people who are brought face to face with the challenge of discipleship. We have no business to assume that each of them responded negatively, but we are not told what happened.

The first man is described in Luke 9:57 and Matthew 8:19, where we are told he was a scribe. That means he occupied a place in the official life of the Jewish people, and was presumably a man of outstanding capabilities. He came from …
