May 2nd. D.L. Moody’s auditorium will open its doors and be filled with people celebrating the transition of this property. As we anticipate that day, we reflect on the Moody legacy.
You do not have to look at the history of Dwight L. Moody for long to see that Moody was a man ahead of his time. He reached out to the rejects of society, promoted racial reconciliation, and gave value to women.
Renewal in the kingdom
As we launch The Moody Center, we hope to keep this heart that longs for the renewal and transformation of God’s kingdom. More than hanging on to history, we want to capture the best of this Moody spirit so that it can transform more generations.
While it is a time of joy to launch, it still emphasizes the longing we have for redemption. Romans 8:22-23 says, “We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.”
The Moody Center is not about a man who did a few good works, but we are about what his heart was after- the complete redemption by the Lord and bringing as many people as possible into this.
Our future outlook is that our hearts are heavy for redemption.
We see the spiritual state of the New England region, and we see bright promise to bring the gospel and be a turning point in our nation’s culture.
Pray for us as we go forward that we will find partners to carry on this great work. Let our hearts stay broken for the Lord’s work of redemption.
