William Hoste lays out 5 important facts about new birth: 1. God is its Author. It cannot be worked up; it must come down. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights…Of His own will He brought us forth [birthed us] by the word of truth” (Jas 1:17-18). 2. The Holy Spirit is its Agent. “Unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit’” (Jn 3:5-6). 3. The Word is its Instrument. “Having been born again, not of corruptible...

Patrick couldn’t find an answer to his soul hunger until a tourist struck up a conversation with him about spiritual things. Sensing his hunger, the visitor left him a New Testament. Through reading it, Pat found the Lord. The priest, noting his absence, paid him a visit and found Pat studying the Word. “What’s that you’re reading,” he asked. “Sure, your Riverence, it’s the New Testament.” “That’s not a book for the likes of you!” the priest exclaimed. “But I’ve just been reading what the apostle Peter wrote, ‘Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that you may grow by it’ (1 Pet...

How do you answer those who embrace the idea of reincarnation? Sometimes called the transmigration of the soul, it is an attempt to overcome the hopelessness of thinking there is nothing beyond death, while refusing to accept the Bible’s teaching as stated in Heb 9:27, “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” But here is a wise way to respond. My friend Anil and I were speaking to an old Hindu who felt he should explain reincarnation to me. When he finished, I said, “Anil, what do you think of that?” Looking in love on the old Hindu, Anil said, “Do you know what I...

George Hucklesby shows the simple but effective method used by the one who led him into full assurance. After hearing a gospel message, a kind lady asked him if he was sure of being saved. No, he was not. “Would you like to be saved now?” she asked. “Yes,” he responded, but wondered how that was possible. She asked George to kneel with her as she “asked the Lord to complete His work of grace in my heart.” On their knees, she opened the Bible at Isaiah 53 and asked him to read the fifth verse this way, “But he was wounded for my transgressions, he was bruised for my iniquities: the...

Two great sins are marked out in Scripture by other sinners being threatened with having “their portion with hypocrites” (Mt 24:51), and that God “will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers” (Lk 12:46). Who can say which is greater? Certainly the Lord reserved His most scathing words for hypocrites. As He said, “Woe to you…hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in” (Mt 23:13). Through hypocrisy, both leader and follower perish. The curse of hypocrisy is this: as long as a person...

James M. Gray, longtime Dean at Moody Bible Institute, tells his story: “I regularly attended church. At 14, when I knew ‘the creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the ten commandments’ I was ‘confirmed in the most holy faith’ by a bishop of our church, and was taught that I had become a child of God. But this I do not now believe. My true conversion took place seven years later. I was reading a book by William Arnot called Laws from Heaven for Life on Earth. For my Bible I did not care, but this book had a strong attraction to me. One night, after an exciting evening among worldly people, my eye...
