Soul Surgery: Part 6

Part 6 of a 9-part series by Pastor Alan Redpath given over the course of 1959. Confession In Soul Winning Last month our subject was winning of Confidence in soul-winning, and now this word Confession is really the logical conclusion which denotes that the personal worker has won through to the innermost need of the life of another. He has been privileged to see the room in his life, the door of which is usually closed and barred. Even where there is abundance of confidence the work may be a comparative failure because we have stopped short of the genuine … Read More >

Victorious—Christian Living in the Home

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 … Read More >

A Fine Example

“Yet I supposed it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, and companion in labour, and fellow-soldier, but your messenger, and he that ministered to my wants”—Philippians 2:25 There are folk whose names appear only once or perhaps at the most twice in Scripture, yet whose character is just full of inspiration and comfort and help. Epaphroditus is one of these, and we might easily overlook him and forget about him altogether, because apart from the mention of his name in our text and in the 18th verse of the 4th chapter of this very letter, we don’t hear … Read More >

Seek Ye Christ's Kingdom

Sermon preached by Dr. Harold Ockenga, Park Street Church, Boston, in The Moody Church on Sunday morning, June 12, 1960. “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”—Matthew 6:33 I declare unto you that this text is true. It is true in my life. It is true in the history of my church. It is true in the work of churches all over this land. Wherever we as individual believers or we as a group of corporate believers will seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, … Read More >

A Question Without An Answer

For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?”—Mark 8:36 I suppose that question must be hypothetical. It is quite impossible for anybody ever to gain the world. You might get a bit of it, you might even get quite a lot of it, but you certainly could never have all of it. Just suppose you could. The Lord Jesus puts in one scale the world in its entirety and on the other scale He puts the soul in its eternity. He puts the two side by side and says, … Read More >

Soul Surgery: Part 7

Part 7 of a 9-part series by Pastor Alan Redpath given over the course of 1959. Conviction In Soul Winning Conviction may come simultaneously with confession, but confession of sin is not in itself conviction of sin. We cannot see life in reality without being oppressed with the awfulness of the burden of sin, our own and that of the world. We cannot think of human nature without being staggered by the terrible contradictions it contains. It is capable of soaring to Christ-like acts and emotions, and at the same time capable of descending to devilish lust and cruelty. The … Read More >

Soul Surgery: Part 3

Part 3 of a 9-part series by Pastor Alan Redpath given over the course of 1959. The Strategy Of Our Witness Though one may know that there are impediments in personal witness, people resent the man or woman who walks right into their lives and talks about this most sacred subject. Call it “defenses” if you like, and hint that this may screen some moral failure (though that may be a very vulgar and unworthy imputation) the fact remains that people dislike it when we do it. In any case, it is bad strategy to antagonize someone you want to … Read More >

As He

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 … Read More >

A Lesson On Gratitude

Sermon preached by Pastor Alan Redpath in The Moody Church on Sunday, June 1, 1958. What a difference it makes in life when we not only talk about thanks giving, but when thanks giving issues in thanks living! For our meditation we are to consider Luke 17:11–19—the story of ten lepers. Though the Bible has many themes that run through it, and many chords assist in playing the great overtures of redemption, there is only one major theme that runs through it all—that of man’s relationship to God: a relationship which was broken long, long ago by rebellion, which God … Read More >

On To Maturity

In the fourth chapter of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians you will find our text for this message—Ephesians chapter four, verses eleven through thirteen. “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; “For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ; “Till we all come into the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.” I am sure that everybody today … Read More >
