The Unchanging Word

I suppose that if one were to choose one word that embraces what is happening around us, and across the world, at this present time and in the last twenty years, that word would be “change.” Maps [are] changing—nations are being born—the exploration of the starry universe opens a new world. Neighborhoods change—governments change—circumstances of life change. In this world of change we need something to hold on to—something that is permanent and unchangeable. Something solid and firm on which we can stand. Some place where we can rest our thoughts and feel that we have laid hold of the … Read More >


Submission And Commission

(Helpful to Sunday School Lesson of February 29, 1920; 1 Peter 2:1–5, 11–12; 19–25) “Laying aside.” How necessary is this first step in Christian living. Many people quote another part of the Scripture that says, “Resist the devil and he will flee from you,” but they forget the words of that injunction, which are, “Submit yourselves to God.” Now before there can be Christian living there must be a laying aside. How few Christians consider this cleaning up that is necessary, this pruning that must take place, this going down before there comes the going up and the bearing of … Read More >


God's Pilgrim People

Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied”—1 Peter 1:1–2 We have in these opening verses the apostolic salutation. He who had been commissioned by the risen Christ to feed and shepherd the sheep and lambs of his flock addresses himself to those who in years gone by were as sheep without a shepherd, scattered on every high hill, but who … Read More >


The Christian Family

Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; while they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; but let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. For … 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 >


What Made You Cross?

Part 1 The Moody Church News, September 1948 “For even the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for many.”—Mark 10:45 A great fact is here stated concerning the Son of Man. The speaker is our Lord Himself, who in this, as in all matters, left us an example that we should follow in His steps. The incident that gave rise to His words is a sad one. Two of His disciples, James and John, wanted to be ministered unto by being granted the chief places in His … Read More >


False Theories

I want to talk to you from 1 Peter 2:24, “Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we being dead to sins should live unto righteousness, by whose stripes ye were healed.” In another place in the Scripture it says, “He became sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” If that isn’t a clear statement of substituted life then I don’t know a clear statement when I see one. He absolutely takes my sins and in His own body deals with them … Read More >


A New Nation

Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, as newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: if so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the Scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief … Read More >


Exposition Of 1 Peter

Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of … Read More >


Removing Rubbish

It is a source of great comfort to turn to the Bible and discover that all through history men of God, venturing upon service for God, have been confronted with the very same problems as we face today. Here Nehemiah, unmistakably called and commissioned to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, having secured an army of willing helpers, now finds himself faced with discouragement of every kind. The opposition of Sanballat, Tobiah and Geshem, who have already launched their campaign of hate, has been faced realistically. The people have a mind to work, a heart to pray, an eye to watch. … Read More >
