On Friday, we will launch our Resources page with The Moody Heritage Collection- a five part collection of Moody’s sermons, including his final sermon at Roundtop Hill in Northfield, Massachusetts.
Connecting a 19th century figure to the modern day
We believe preserving these sermons is important not just to commemorate a legacy but to get people thinking about their own. In Moody’s words, you will not find a deep eloquence; he spoke with simple truth and told the examples the every day person would understand. God used Dwight L. Moody not because he had all the qualifications but because Moody had a heart yielded to God’s way.
We tend to get caught up nowadays in technicalities, areas of expertise, or worrying over words, which are not bad things inherently, but maybe we need to follow in Moody’s footsteps and start saying “yes” to God despite our worries. It is time to start living well as good stewards of what God has entrusted.
Choosing to engage
As we start the journey of creating resources, we always want it to be with the goal of seeing action from the Church. In our research, we saw many Christian training sites exist, but many are purely for information, not follow through. In a day of technology, we are great at creating noise; don’t we all love the sound of our own voices! Our goal is to begin building resources where accountability and community will be central pieces.
We need people in the trenches. This work of evangelism and discipleship is not something we can do all on our own, so we are inviting you to show up. Let’s be on the front lines of God’s work. D.L. Moody lived in a way where he was ready to meet Jesus any day, and we want to wake Christians up to live with the same passion.
Thanks for joining us in this journey. May Moody’s sermons inspire you to do a heart check and ask what you are contributing to the kingdom.
