If death should come …

“If death should come after any one of us tonight, are we sheltered behind Jesus’ blood? That is the point. It is the precious blood that atones. Not any good resolutions, or prayers, or position in society, or what we have done, but what has been done by another.”
D. L. Moody

Men say they don’t …

“Men say they don’t want to give up their freedom. There is no freedom until a man knows the Lord Jesus Christ. A man is slave to sin, to his passions and lusts until Christ snaps the fetters and sets him free.”
D. L. Moody

“I can imagine …

“I can imagine some one saying, “What am I to do? I cannot create life. I certainly cannot save myself.” You certainly cannot; and we do not claim that you can. We tell you it is utterly impossible to make a man better without Christ; but that is what men are trying to do. They are trying to patch up this “old Adam” nature. There must be a new creation. Regeneration is a new creation; and if it is a new creation it must be the work of God. In the first chapter of Genesis man does not appear. There is no one there but God. Man is not there to take part. When God created the earth He was alone. When Christ redeemed the world He was alone.”
— from “The Way To God” by D. L. Moody
