Toward Spiritual Maturity

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, … Read More >

A Lesson On Prayer

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 … Read More >

Revival—The Kind That Counts

My soul cleaveth unto the dust: QUICKEN THOU ME according to Thy word.”—Psalm 119:25 “I am afflicted very much: QUICKEN ME, O Lord, according to Thy word.”—Psalm 119:107 “Plead my cause and deliver me: QUICKEN ME according to Thy word.”—Psalm 119:154 These words of Scripture define a true revival. It is a quickening according to God’s Word, not according to some man’s magnetism of eccentricity. A talented evangelist may swoop down upon a community and make a stir by sharp striking sayings, draw large crowds and quicken a kind of interest, but such a quickening may be according to the … Read More >

Care Free; Prayer Full.

(Excerpts from an address delivered at Watch Night meeting at the [Moody] Tabernacle by Mrs. J.D. Williams of C. & M.A. Bible School, St. Paul) “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”—Philippians 4:6 Just two thoughts stand out in this verse for us in these few moments as we look into the Word: BE CARE FREE: BE PRAYER FULL. I believe as you have gone on in your Christian life you have found that nothing hinders prayer so much as anxiety; fretting and anxious care. Then, … Read More >

Come

We climb the mountain by stepping from rock to rock; but the soul makes its way in faith by stepping from one word of the Lord to another. Some think that Peter walked on the water, but if you will read the passage you will find Peter really stepped on the little word, “Come,” and was safer on that little word “come” than any man is in an ocean liner. Peter would have been foolish to have stepped on the water without this little word of Jesus, “Come,” beneath his feet. Faith cannot plant its feet in certainty except the … Read More >

Learning To Pray

Sermon delivered at the Moody Tabernacle by W.H. Griffith Thomas, D.D. on February 1, 1922. When we were little and went to school for the first time we were expected to learn more and more each week and each term, until at last our school days were over, but although school days are over and people sometimes talk about finishing their education, as a matter of fact education is never finished. We always are learning something. In the same way, when we commence the Christian life we are like little children, and the Lord who is our Saviour becomes our … Read More >

The Food Supply

Sermon preached by Paul Rader, April 29, 1917. “And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written that man shall not live by bread alone but by every word of God.”—Luke 4:4 When God put man in the garden of Eden He put luscious fruits all around him, and all man had to do was to reach up and get them or reach down and pluck the herbs. There was plenty of food and the supply never ran short. There was no sweat or worry or pestilence and nothing to harm or poison or destroy until sin came in with its awful … Read More >

The Power Of Prayer

Our text—the Acts of the Apostles, the twelfth chapter and the fifth verse: “Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.” In this chapter there is an incident which touches right at the very heart of our experience as Christian people. I do trust that this story, which just reaches down to grass roots, may really speak to our hearts today that we may apply it, every one of us, to our own lives. Here is an insight in this chapter into the great warfare of the Christian life, and … Read More >

A Heavenly Guide

Now there were in the Church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. “As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.  “And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away. “So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed.” —Acts 13:1–4. As we read the history of Paul … Read More >

Out Of Prison

(Helpful to Sunday School Lesson of February 22, 1920, Acts 12:1–19) “Was kept in prison.” How wonderful is the contrast between these words and the words in the 9th verse, “And he went out.”What a contrast of power is here. In the first place poor little puny government officials, needful as they are, honored as they must be by every Christian and obeyed as God has commanded them to be, yet how little is their power when God says, “Open the door and let them out.” It is so with every door that shuts against us. We are under … Read More >
