Moody: straight to Jesus

Friday, December 4, 2015
    Commemoration of Nicholas Ferrar, Deacon, Founder of the Little Gidding Community, 1637
    [Peter:] “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”
    —Acts 4:12 (NIV)
    We are not to put our trust in this man or that man—not to lean upon an arm of flesh. All the ministers in the world and all the potentates in the church put together cannot save one soul. It is thoroughly impossible. It is the Lord that can save, and the Lord alone; therefore we want to get our eyes away from man, from the church, and right straight up to the man Christ Jesus.
    ... Dwight Lyman Moody (1837-1899), Moody and Sankey, the new evangelists, their lives and labours, London: Ward, Lock, and Tyler, 1876, p. 119 (see the book)
    See also Acts 4:12; John 3:36; 14:5; Acts 10:42-43; 1 Cor. 3:11; 1 John 5:11-12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You alone save.
