FREE BOOK: Men of the Bible

Note: many of Moody's books are free right now!  

In this classic book written just before the turn of the century, Moody details the lives of Abraham, Moses, Naaman, Nehemiah, Herod, John the Baptist, the man born blind, Joseph of Arimathea, and the penitent thief. He tells each man's story in a way that connects their lives with ours. See how God uses people for His glory and our good!  

Moody himself, writea: A great many people are afraid of the will of God, and yet I believe that one of the sweetest lessons that we can learn in the school of Christ is the surrender of our wills to God, letting Him plan for us and rule our lives. If I know my own mind, if an angel should come from the throne of God and tell me that I could have my will done the rest of my days on earth, and that everything I wished should be carried out, or that I might refer it back to God, and let God’s will be done in me and through me, I think in an instant I would say:

“Let the will of God be done.”

I cannot look into the future. I do not know what is going to happen to-morrow; in fact, I do not know what may happen before night; so I cannot choose for myself as well as God can choose for me, and it is much better to surrender my will to God’s will. Abraham found this out, and I want to call your attention to four surrenders that he was called to make. I think that they give us a pretty good key to his life.
