What Is Your Life?

And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent.” —John 17:3 “This is life,” not “it will be,” but this is life eternal—present salvation, a present knowledge, a present God and a present understanding of it in our hearts. Now, with our sensibilities we understand some things that are in the world. All of our knowledge comes through sensation, and sensations taken together form ideas. Let me illustrate. There is no use getting off that “highbrow stuff” unless we understand it. All of our … Read More >

The Potter And The Clay

A Sermon Preached by Dr. Herbert Lockyer at The Moody Church in 1939 In the book of the prophet Jeremiah, chapter 18, we have the incomparable record of the potter and the clay. “The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again another … Read More >

Out Of The Cave

Psalm 77: “I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and He gave ear unto me…” This psalm tells the story of David and how he got out of the cave. As Professor James G. Murphy of Belfast says in his commentary, “The psalm was most probably composed on some critical emergency in the eventful life of David. The hiding of David in the cave of Adullam has been suggested by different writers.” It is the devil’s peculiar joy to get us into a hole, and it is God’s particular delight to get us … Read More >

The Price And Privilege Of Discipleship

Notes of a message given on Sunday morning, by Pastor Alan Redpath on September 11, 1955. We have seen in the Beatitudes, the genuine Christian—the true citizen of the Kingdom—growing into maturity. We have seen him as he is in his own consciousness, in his own longings, and what he can become by the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. We have also seen the resultant impact such a life will have upon the world. Some say our text is the 8th Beatitude completing the Octave. Others see it in a different light. Up to this point it has been … Read More >

The Resurgence Of Islam

The Response of the Church Early this year (2007) I attended a conference in New York on the topic of Islam that included speakers from Africa, Europe, and Australia. The task before us was ominous: what should we do about radical Islam and its intention to destroy the church? Speakers from Africa gave statistics and described the burning of churches, the killing of families, and seizing of property. Representatives from Europe reported on intimidation and threats, and yes, killings too. Europe clearly remembers the “cartoon crisis” when innocent people were killed in the violence. Because the percentage of Muslims in … Read More >

The Transformed Life

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 … Read More >

Celebrating Victory

We have been studying from the book of Joshua the principles of Christian victory, release from the bondage of failure and misery in the kingdom of Satan, through the blood of the Cross, and through the Lamb that was slain. This deliverance led us out through the Red Sea, out from the kingdom of Satan into the kingdom of God. But, alas, in our Christian life we have been far too long on the wilderness journey. There we have known in a measure the presence of God and His victory, but we have known defeats and failures. Many have crossed … Read More >

The Satisfied Life

Unto the tribe of Levi, Moses gave not any inheritance. The Lord God of Israel was their inheritance, as he said unto them” (Joshua 13:33). The first verse of Joshua 13 begins with the Lord’s reminder to Joshua, “there remains yet very much land to be possessed.” We have seen how true that is in relation to the spiritual experience of us all. We remind ourselves that possession of the land by Israel was by lot. In other words, God determined the precise area which each tribe was to occupy, and each was responsible for applying the principles … Read More >
