The Voice of Forgiveness is Louder – DL Moody

The Voice of Forgiveness is Louder – DL Moody

Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?”  Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times (Matthew 18:21-22).

Peter did not seem to think that he was in danger of falling into sin; his question was, How often should I forgive my brother? But very soon we hear that Peter has fallen. I can imagine that when he did fall, the sweet thought came to him of what the Master had said. The voice of sin may be loud, but the voice of forgiveness is louder.

Maturity Takes Time – DL Moody

Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 3:18

Although you may be born again, it will require time to become a full-grown Christian. Justification is instantaneous, but sanctification is a lifework. We are to grow in wisdom. We are to add grace to grace. A tree may be perfect in its first year of growth, but it has not attained its maturity. So with the Christian: he may be a true child of God, but not a matured Christian.

Confess Your Sins – DL Moody

There are men today who are in darkness and bondage because they are not willing to turn from their sins and confess them. I do not know how a man can hope to be forgiven if he is not willing to confess his sins.

DL Moody was a good preacher but a greater pray-er – RA Torrey

Out of a very intimate acquaintance with D.L. Moody, I wish to testify that he was a far greater pray-er than he was preacher. Time and time again, he was confronted by obstacles that seemed insurmountable, but he always knew the way to overcome all difficulties. He knew the way to bring to pass anything that needed to be brought to pass. He knew and believed in the deepest depths of his soul that nothing was too hard for the Lord, and that prayer could do anything that God could do.
