Happy Friday everyone! Today’s featured free download is The Secret Power by Dwight L. Moody.
The first work of the Spirit is to give life; spiritual life. He gives it and He sustains it. If there is no life, there can be no power; Solomon says: “A living dog is better than a dead lion.” When the Spirit imparts this life, He does not leave us to droop and die, but constantly fans the flame. He is ever with us. Surely we ought not to be ignorant of His power and His work.
The great nineteenth century evangelist Dwight Lyman Moody believed that the power of the Holy Spirit had been too much overlooked by Christians. By acknowledging the power of the Holy Spirit in their lives, Christians’ works will become more joyful and refreshing.
Moody wrote, “The result is lack of power in testimony and work. If we would work, not as one that beats the air, but to some definite purpose, we must have this power from on high. Without this power, our work will be a drudgery. With it, it becomes a joyful task, a refreshing service. May God make this book a blessing to many. This is my prayer.”
Dwight L. Moody was an American evangelist and publisher who founded the Moody Church, Northfield School, the Mount Hermon School in Massachusetts, the Moody Bible Institute, and Moody Publishers.
