We keep the wall between us as we go. To each the boulders that have fallen to each. And some are loaves and some so nearly balls We have to use a spell to make them balance:
The Blood of the New Testament by D. Moody "For this is My blood of the New Testament, which is shed for many, for the remission of sins.
I want to take up some passages referring to the subject of the Precious Blood in the New Testament. Soon after we came back from Europe to this country, I received a letter from a lady saying that she had looked forward to our coming back to this country with a great deal of interest, and that her interest remained after we had commenced our services until I came to the lecture on the blood, when she gave up all hope of our doing any good.
In closing that letter she said ; " Where did Jesus ever teach the perilous and barbarous doctrine that men were to be redeemed by the shedding of His blood?
Take the blessed doctrine of the blood out of my Bible and my capital is gone, and I've got to take to something else. He said to me: Moody, you are either all right and I am all wrong, or else I am right and you are all wrong.
You have heard me preach, and know what doctrines I hold, whereas I have not heard you, and don't know what you preach.
I tell you the moment a man breaks away from this doctrine of blood, religion becomes a sham, because the whole teaching of this book is of one story, and this is that Christ came into the world and died for our sins.
I want to call your attention to the nineteenth chapter of John and the thirty-fourth verse: It was the breaking of the crown of hell and the giving of the crown of Heaven.
When the Roman soldier drove out the blood, out came the water, and it touched that spear, and it was not long before Christ had that Roman government. It is a throne and a footstool now, and by and by Page 35 it will sway the earth from pole to pole.
This earth has been redeemed by the blessed blood of Christ. Peter says in his first Epistle 1: Why, the poorest thing is gold in Heaven. But gold couldn't do it. The law had been broken, and the penalty of death had come upon us, and it required life to redeem us.
Now, it says we shall be redeemed. I am no longer my own, I am His. He has ransomed me. A friend of mine once told me that he was going out from Dublin one day, and met a boy who had one of those English sparrows in his hand.
It was frightened, and just seemed to sit as if it pined for liberty, but the boy held it so tight that it could not get away. The boy's strength was too much for the bird.
You will never tame him; he is wild. A bargain was made, and the sparrow was transferred to the man's hand. He opened his hand, and at first the bird did not seem to realize it had liberty, but by and by it flew away, and as it went it chirped, as much to say, "You have redeemed me. Satan was stronger than we were.
He has had six thousand years' experience. Jesus did not come to buy us from Satan, but from the penalty of our sin.
Page 36 Another thought about the blood. It makes us all one. The blood brings us into one family, into the household of faith. I remember during the war Dr. Kirk, one of the most eloquent men I ever heard, was speaking in Boston.
At that time, you recollect, there was a good deal said about the Irish and the black man, and what an amount of talk about the war of races. He said while preaching one night: It just makes us one.
I can tell a man that has been redeemed by the blood; they speak all the same language. I don't require to be in his company ten minutes before I can tell whether or not he has been redeemed. They have only one language, and you can tell when they speak whether they are outside the blood or sheltered by it.
If we are sheltered behind the blood, it cries for our salvation, for we see in Galatians: Again, I would like to call your attention to the twenty-sixth chapter of Matthew, twenty-eighth verse, where we find Christ speaking of His blood: Said a man to me last night after the meeting:- Robert Frost's Poem "The Road Not Taken" The poem “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost addresses the idea of decision-making and choosing what direction life will take you.
