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 Chief Of Sinners Saved

And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might … Read More >

The Divine Logic Of Foreign Missions

By Rev. F.C.H. Dreyer, Retired Moody Church Missionary Worldwide Christian missions are not founded on emotion, altruism, or expediency, but upon the transcendent love and the eternal purpose of God. Those who deny the lordship of Christ and reject the authority of the Scriptures have no urge to carry the Gospel to other parts of the world. They may look on missions as pious, well-intentioned undertakings, which afford outlets for philanthropic instincts in social service but otherwise they will see little foreign missionary work to interest realistic men and women of today. But those who accept the authority of the … 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 Called Of Jesus Christ

Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ” (Romans 1:6). When something is important, it has many words attached to it. Just think of the thousands of words attached to the automobile industry, for example, or to the music trade. A hi-fi addict has a vocabulary all his own, and that vocabulary is important to him. Even a hunter or a fisherman will have words and terms that are meaningful only to his crowd. God’s people are important to God; and because they are important, He has many names for them. Sometimes He simply calls us “children.” Other … Read More >

Life At Its Best

An addressed delivered by Harry Ironside at Wheaton College. The text I have in mind for this message is found in the book of Genesis, chapter 27, the last seven words of verse 46: “What good shall my life do me?” You may or may not recall the connection and the circumstances under which these words were uttered. They were spoken querulously by a disgruntled mother-in-law who felt that her eldest son had made a fatal mistake in a double matrimonial venture. As Mark Twain said of Brigham Young, “He loved not wisely but too many.” And they were both … Read More >

The Latter Days

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils (or teaching of demons); speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: for it is sanctified by the Word of God and prayer. If thou put the … Read More >

The Prodigal Daughter

And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.”—Luke 8:50 There are as many types of prodigal women as of prodigal men. The worldly, godless woman is a prodigal. She dresses well, gives parties with cards and wine, frequents the theater during the week and goes to church on Sunday morning. She is no sinner in the sense that she violates the proprieties of society. She keeps the Ten Commandments. But in her life of elegant dissipation she wastes her substance in riotous living. The pleasure-seeking woman is a prodigal. Her picture is given … Read More >

The Christian Worker And His Bible

In addressing you today I shall not attempt anything in the way of a regular sermon. As most of you know, I do not have a very orderly mind. I am not accustomed to that delightful homiletical style that so many of you have cultivated and which is so much enjoyed by others. My practice is generally to say just one thing after another as it comes to my mind, and today I want to talk to you about the use of the Bible in Christian work, and in doing this I shall attempt to bring before you certain things … Read More >

Love And Conduct

In a sophisticated civilization such as ours, here in the mid-twentieth century, we think of our conduct as a pretty highly polished way of life. We observe the rules for etiquette, congratulate our friends in their promotions, play it cool when we’re crossed so we don’t appear ruffled by all the idiots around us, and smooth over the weaknesses of our loved ones. We smile at people we dislike and exchange greetings with our enemies, invite the new neighbors in for coffee and give Thanksgiving baskets to the poor family on the other side of the tracks, and then pat … Read More >
