A Christmas Meditation

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”—Isaiah 9:6 It may not be out of place to wish you a joyful Christmas in the name of the Lord Jesus, and may it be a time when we all get beyond the tinsel and the outward to the reality and joy of the coming of God’s own Son. May He be very real to you all at this time. Our … Read More >

The Annunciation

And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth. To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David: and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou … Read More >

Should We Celebrate Christmas?

From the time of the early church, December 25th has been celebrated throughout Christianity. It has served to commemorate the incarnation of Jesus Christ. Even though He was not literally born on that particular December 25th over two thousand years ago, Christmas day and the surrounding holiday season reminds us yearly of the glorious condescension of the infinite to the finite. At The Moody Church, we heartily partake of this season of guided worship and family fellowship.   Outside of Christianity, Christmas has accumulated secular, cultural significance. Many observe the holiday with no understanding of who Jesus Christ is or why He came … Read More >

O Come Let Us Adore Him!

We’ve sung the words a thousand times: “O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant… O come let us adore Him.” We envy the shepherds who actually saw the baby Jesus, and returned with a message of joy that pierced the midnight air. We can’t join them in Bethlehem, but thankfully, we can adore Jesus right where we are, for today He is at the right hand of the Father. That’s why the invitation is to all of us—“O come let us adore Him.” But how do we “adore Him?” “This people honor me with their lips, but their heart … Read More >

Christmas In The Invisible Church

No Christmas Celebrations in Turkey There will be no Christmas Celebrations in Turkey, this year! Rebecca and I visited Turkey (Asia Minor) this summer, where Paul spent most of his time planting churches. It is also where the famous Seven Churches of Revelation existed, which his why we toured the country, and when we visited all seven of these sites, we were dismayed at what we saw. The Seven Churches of Asia Minor no longer exist. I am not talking about church buildings—I’m talking about congregations, the fact that there is no visible Christian presence of any kind in these … Read More >

Keeping Christmas

In looking back over the files of The Moody Church News, my own heart was stirred by a sermon preaching in 1925 by my revered predecessor under whom the present building was erected, Dr. P.W. Philpott. We are reproducing it in this issue because of its intrinsic value, feeling sure it will prove to have a real message for many of our present day readers. Dr. Philpott, we rejoice to say, is still “going strong” and is being blessedly used of God in his nation-wide evangelistic and Bible teaching ministry.—Harry A. Ironside As we read again the sweet … Read More >

No Room In The Inn

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.” —Luke 2:7 Doubtless there seemed to be very good reasons, at least in the minds of the innkeeper, why it was impossible to entertain Joseph and Mary when they came to Bethlehem to be taxed. There must have been many other Bethlehemites who had hastened thither in order that they too might be properly enrolled. Probably many of these were much better able to pay for accommodations than the Nazareth carpenter … Read More >

Sharing The Gift Of Christmas Through Worship

Experiencing the heart of Christmas this holiday season—and every day of the year! You would think that after enjoying 71 Christmas seasons and preparing for my 72nd, my enthusiasm for the holiday would wear off, but it hasn’t. I still look forward to Christmas for many reasons. For one thing, I immediately think of our family; our three daughters, their husbands, and a total of eight grandchildren. If you aren’t a parent or a grandparent, imagine what it would be like to see the children’s excitement, their anticipation, and the connection we all enjoy with one another at get-togethers; whether … Read More >

John Harper's Last Convert

John Harper’s Last Convert - Sharing the Gift of Christmas One Minute before You Die When I became pastor of The Moody Church in 1980, I knew one of the church rooms was named Harper Hall in memory of the Scottish evangelist who was on a journey to The Moody Church but drowned when the Titanic sank in April 1912. Only recently, however, did I learn the full story of this remarkable man. Harper’s reputation as an evangelist was so well known that he was invited to speak at The Moody Church in 1910. I have in my possession a … Read More >

Sharing The One Christmas Gift That Truly Matters

Sharing the Free Gift that Matters this Christmas… and a story to encourage you “We don’t have gifts here. We have no money and there is nothing to buy in the stores. The best we can do is get together for a meal and sing carols—and make sure that the neighbors don’t hear us.” How different Christmas is for my friend Victor Krutkow, whom Rebecca and I visited in Belarus several years ago! But in many countries of the world, whole populations will neither give nor receive Christmas presents. Many Americans will also not give gifts this year—for lack of … Read More >
