The Potter And The Clay

A Sermon Preached by Dr. Herbert Lockyer at The Moody Church in 1939 In the book of the prophet Jeremiah, chapter 18, we have the incomparable record of the potter and the clay. “The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again another … Read More >

Renewed Vision

And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.” —Matthew 5:41 “Go with him twain.” I call your earnest attention to these words. I find in them a characteristic mark of a very unique people. The Word of God says that He desires a peculiar people, zealous of good works. The characteristic mark then, of this peculiar people, is this, if a man compels them to go a mile, they will go with him twain. That is, they do not only what they are expected to do, but, because of grace given, they do the unexpected. … Read More >

Celebrating Victory

We have been studying from the book of Joshua the principles of Christian victory, release from the bondage of failure and misery in the kingdom of Satan, through the blood of the Cross, and through the Lamb that was slain. This deliverance led us out through the Red Sea, out from the kingdom of Satan into the kingdom of God. But, alas, in our Christian life we have been far too long on the wilderness journey. There we have known in a measure the presence of God and His victory, but we have known defeats and failures. Many have crossed … Read More >

Out Of The Cave

Psalm 77: “I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and He gave ear unto me…” This psalm tells the story of David and how he got out of the cave. As Professor James G. Murphy of Belfast says in his commentary, “The psalm was most probably composed on some critical emergency in the eventful life of David. The hiding of David in the cave of Adullam has been suggested by different writers.” It is the devil’s peculiar joy to get us into a hole, and it is God’s particular delight to get us out … Read More >

God's Way Of Deliverance

On The Hour of Decision program recently, a man saved during the Greater London Crusade said that in the course of a service he didn’t so much notice what Billy Graham was saying—all he became conscious of was a voice speaking to his heart and claiming his decision, his surrender, and there could be no possible resistance to it. I wonder what it is that brings a life into living touch with Christ. What is it that makes a service so different? Well, it is just when God speaks to the heart. I believe that sort of thing happens by … Read More >

Hallelujah Anyway!

I want you to know brethren, that what I have gone through has resulted in the furtherance of the gospel.”—Philippians 1:12 (Weymouth translation) “What I have gone through.” What tremendously suggestive words these are, and how personal they are to everybody, but in so many different ways. Has there been for you a crushing bereavement which has broken your heart, or has it been a fiery trial of temptation that has threatened to make shipwreck of your testimony? Has it been a broken friendship, shattered hope, an unexpected and unwanted change in circumstances of life? Or some physical suffering, such … Read More >

The Charmed Life

This is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” —1 John 5:4 A great struggle for national life is on. In belligerent days, if we are not careful, our tendency will be to fight our way, and forget that we have one who has already won the victory. It is ours but to believe that He has already conquered all our foes. How often we forget this, and struggle. Beloved, ours is a charmed life. We have a shepherd, we have one who cares, we have one who begs us to cast all our cares upon Him. As … Read More >

As Silver Is Tried

At the Victorious Life Conference, Cedar Lake, June 30, 1917 “For Thou, O God, hast proved us: Thou hast tried us, as silver is tried” (Psalm 66:10). Probably everyone here today is a Christian, and the great need of Christians in these days is the life of victory and the life of power and the life of devotion. The man-made religious formality creeping over the earth today is the enemy of the real fire of God. If you will notice when you start a meeting, you have to keep praying, and if you are not careful the devil will throw … Read More >

The Fruitfulness Of Forgetting

The story of Joseph is familiar to all of us—how he was hated by his brothers, sold into Egypt as a slave, arrested for a crime he did not commit, and then exalted to become the second ruler of the land. During his years of separation from his family, Joseph married and his wife gave birth to two sons, whom he named Ephraim and Manasseh. Have you ever looked into the meaning of those two names? Manasseh means “forgetting” and Ephraim means “fruitful.” Why did Joseph choose those names, and what do those names mean to us today? The naming … Read More >

The Satisfied Life

Unto the tribe of Levi, Moses gave not any inheritance. The Lord God of Israel was their inheritance, as he said unto them” (Joshua 13:33). The first verse of Joshua 13 begins with the Lord’s reminder to Joshua, “there remains yet very much land to be possessed.” We have seen how true that is in relation to the spiritual experience of us all. We remind ourselves that possession of the land by Israel was by lot. In other words, God determined the precise area which each tribe was to occupy, and each was responsible for applying the principles they had … Read More >
