A Lesson On Gratitude

Sermon preached by Pastor Alan Redpath in The Moody Church on Sunday, June 1, 1958. What a difference it makes in life when we not only talk about thanks giving, but when thanks giving issues in thanks living! For our meditation we are to consider Luke 17:11–19—the story of ten lepers. Though the Bible has many themes that run through it, and many chords assist in playing the great overtures of redemption, there is only one major theme that runs through it all—that of man’s relationship to God: a relationship which was broken long, long ago by rebellion, which God … Read More >

Eating Money

So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”—Luke 12:21 We have here the picture that Jesus draws of the rich fool. Now it is pretty hard to tell the world that there is such a thing as a rich fool, because nearly everybody thinks when a man gets money he is about the wisest thing on the earth, and they think when money comes it is about all you can ask for, and it seems to be the god of this world. God has said Himself, that “the love of money is the … Read More >

Looking In The Wrong Place

Why seek ye the living among the dead?”—Luke 24:5 It is quite characteristic of weak, doubting human nature that the women who had heard the Lord Jesus declare that He would rise on the third day should come to the sepulcher bringing spices for the dead instead of approaching the grave in high expectation to see the living. On the very day He had promised to return from the dead, they came to honor a corpse instead of to greet a Conqueror! So forgetful of His promise were they that the angels must call it to their attention (Luke 24:5-8). … Read More >

But God…

My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.”—Psalm 73:26 Among the many wonderful things in the book of Psalms, there is nothing in my mind more wonderful than the fact that this book is such a transparent account of the inner dealing of a soul with God. You have history books and prophetic books in the Bible, but here you have a book which just seems to draw the veil aside to let you see something of the inner conflict of the spirit as the man talks with God. This … Read More >

Rescue The Perishing

Go out into the highways and the hedges and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.”—Luke 14:23 There is a picture of this compelling in the story of the Good Samaritan in the 10th chapter of Luke. We can take this story, this good news, this Gospel to a lost and beaten world, and it compels men to come into the Father’s house. We are not to go with the law. Praise God for that, but we are to go and preach this compelling Gospel of the grace of God to a world that has fallen … Read More >

A Lesson On Frustration

Every one of us listening to this service would, I am sure, unquestionably agree that life is a battle these days. It’s full of tension,—tension at [an] international level, tension on [a] national level, political level, tension in labor relationships, tension in family life, tension in your own personal life. Far from these signs of tension decreasing, they are only increasing constantly and any attempt to deal with them seems to lead to utter frustration. If you and I could draw the veil a moment and look behind, we would find the answer to it all. For we would discover … Read More >

A Lesson On Devotion

The story in Luke 7:36–50 which we are now to consider, is quite unique in all the four Gospels. There is one very much like it which is recounted by Matthew and Mark which took place much later in the ministry of our Lord, when a woman poured a box of precious ointment upon His head, and then broke the box. In John 11 she is identified as Mary of Bethany. Here we meet in this chapter two people—Simon a Pharisee, and a woman which is called a sinner, as Luke describes her. They are in the same house, but … 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 >

Christian Stewardship

No Christian can afford to have the reputation for owing without paying. If through reverses or misfortunes of any kind you find that you are unable to pay a debt, seek your creditor and explain to him, while you appeal to his mercy. If he demands in payment all you have, to the hat that is on your head, you had better surrender it rather than risk making a name for refusing to pay debts. A professing Christian who refused to pay his debts when pressed by his creditors quoted the hymn, “Free from the law, O happy condition,” and … Read More >

The Crooked Woman

Pastor Redpath’s first sermon at The Moody Church from September 20, 1953. As my first message of this pastorate I purpose to set before us what is the primary objective in the coming years of my ministry, as God helps us and gives us grace. I believe no more fitting passage of Scripture could be used for this purpose than the thirteenth chapter of St. Luke’s Gospel beginning at the tenth verse—the story of a woman with a “spirit of infirmity.” “And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. “And behold, there was a woman which … Read More >
