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 >

A Lesson On Discipleship

A sermon preached by Pastor Alan Redpath on Sunday, March 29, 1959. In this passage from the Word of God, we find three very interesting people who are brought face to face with the challenge of discipleship. We have no business to assume that each of them responded negatively, but we are not told what happened. The first man is described in Luke 9:57 and Matthew 8:19, where we are told he was a scribe. That means he occupied a place in the official life of the Jewish people, and was presumably a man of outstanding capabilities. He came from … Read More >

Preparation And Equipment For Service

Neither will I offer burnt offerings unto the Lord my God, of that which doth cost me nothing,” (2 Samuel 24:24). The burnt offering is the Old Testament picture of entire consecration. It was voluntary. It was all upon the altar. It was made by fire, a sweet savor unto the Lord. I want to use this text as the basis for what is recounted in Nehemiah 2, for the principle of the burnt offering is the principle behind the preparation and equipment of this man, and all others, for the service of God. The Burden He Carried (Nehemiah 2:2) … Read More >

Love Minus Love Equals Nothing

Love is the missing link in the world today. Love is the cure-all medicine for our sin-sick generation. By the word “love” we do not mean a fleshly love of the opposite sex, but a divine love shared by those who know the Lord. Love is the foundation of all that is worthwhile. Love for one’s country is the foundation of a nation. Without this love everyone becomes a law to himself, and unity and strength are dissipated. A nation minus love equals self-destruction. Love for each member of the family is the basis of the home and a sample … Read More >

The Practical Side Of Christianity

And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all quarters, he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lydda. And there he found a certain man named Eneas, which had kept his bed eight years, and was sick of the palsy. And Peter said unto him, Eneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise and make thy bed. And he arose immediately. And all that dwelt at Lydda and Saron saw him, and turned to the Lord. Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of … Read More >

What Constitutes The Compassion Of Christ?

It is a sorry state of things when people [who are] supposed to be Christians and moderately intelligent need to be reminded once a year that this world needs our Christ and that we have this “obligation” to offer the Gospel message and preach it to every creature. Why do we need to be reminded of such a simple fact? We are encouraged to find that in the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ here on Earth He Himself sensed this need to have sort of an annual missionary conference with His disciples, and at regular intervals He spoke often … Read More >

The Man God Uses

“Have I not commanded thee, Be strong and of a good courage, be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed, for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”—Joshua 1:9 We have been thinking about the inner meaning of this book of Joshua. The command of God was, “Go over this Jordan, thou and this people, into the land which I have given thee.” This opened up before us the possibility of life on a higher plane, deliverance from a wilderness experience of defeat into the experience of victory, even though it be through warfare and conflict. As we … Read More >

Write Your Own Success Story

For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s … Read More >

Does Anybody Care?

Luke 10:25-37. We call this “The Parable of the Good Samaritan,” but it is much more than a story. When Jesus spoke these words, He was focusing the white light of His judgment on the human heart. Each one of us is in this story in one way or another. We cannot escape. A man is walking down the road alone. When you look at this man, what do you see? Tell me what you see, and I will tell you what is in your heart. In this story, we discover five different attitudes toward the man, five attitudes that … Read More >

Mr. Rader’s Anniversary Sermon

About a year ago at this time I was choked with emotion, and now I am choked again. I never will forget the night as long as I live, when I walked into the lecture room of The Moody Church and saw the dear friends gathered there who had elected me pastor of The Moody Church. Nobody on earth was so much surprised as I was. I could not believe it; I could not see how God could take a man who had been what I had been, and allow him to be the pastor of such a Church. But, … Read More >
