The Greatest Thing In The World

“That ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth and length and depth and height and to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.”—Ephesians 3:17–19 This is part of the apostle’s prayer for the church at Ephesus. I dwell particularly on this “love that passeth knowledge.” You will know that Paul was the apostle of faith; love was not his strong point. It was John who was the apostle of love. But in his Epistle to the … Read More >

Alive Again

It is concerning this subject, “Alive Again,” that I wish to speak. Let me read from the 20th chapter of John’s Gospel: “The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre.” (Here is a little touch of her love for the Master. She cannot sleep—early, early while it was yet dark. You have gotten up many a time to get ready to go to a picnic, early, while it was yet dark. Her heart went out to Christ early while it was yet dark. Note this eagerness on Mary’s part that … Read More >

Assurance of Salvation

These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. —1 John 5:13 There are two classes who ought not to have assurance. First: Those who are in the church but who are not converted, having never been born of the Spirit. Second: Those not willing to do God’s will; who are not ready to take the place that God has mapped out for them, but want to fill some other … Read More >

How Do You Know When You Reach The Point Of No Return?

The question under consideration is an interesting one: “How do you know when you reach the point of no return in your Christian life? I would say, to begin with, that the personal commitment of a life to the Lord Jesus is the only basis of salvation. Salvation is not a statement of doctrine; it is a surrender to a Person. Of course, you believe right, or you cannot live right. But you can believe right and still not be saved. Personal salvation must involve commitment, and you can find no other basis of salvation in the New Testament. “What … Read More >

The Woman And The Dragon

They overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.”—Revelation 12:11 Notes of a message given by Pastor Alan Redpath in The Moody Church on Sunday, December 19, 1954. Amidst the world-struggle for survival, it is important that we should understand the real nature of the battle in which we, as Christians, are engaged. Paul said in Ephesians 6:12, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” I am not sure if we have begun … 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 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 >

A Sweet Savour Unto God

(Helpful to Sunday School Lesson of March 7, 1920, 1 John 4:7–21) “God is love.” We could also say “God is law”; for in another place in the Scripture God says, “Love is the fulfilling of the law.” Now the law was holy and was placed before men that they might see themselves as God sees them. It was as if a shabby tramp suddenly came upon the picture of a real clean and well-dressed man, and recognized the awful chasm between himself and this gentleman. God placed the law that men might see the chasm between the natural man … Read More >

Seven Reasons Why Jesus Died

It is surprising that after nineteen hundred years of Gospel light and testimony, one often finds professing Christians who manifest great ignorance in regard to the most important fundamental truths of the Word of God. I do not know how many times I have had people come to me—people who had faith in Christ—and put the question in all seriousness, “Just why did Christ have to die in order that we might be saved?” I want to show from the Scripture seven very clear, definite reasons for which Jesus died. The first Scripture is found in 1 Corinthians 15. In … Read More >

God's Way Of Life

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. “If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” —1 John 1:8-9 That is our bill of fare for tonight, and if you do not find enough on that menu then I will say there is something wrong with your appetite or your digestion. There are four simple but vital truths here: First, the fact of sin; second, the condition of forgiveness; third, the ground of assurance; fourth, the … Read More >
