Dwight L. Moody Meets God's Love
The great preacher, Dwight L. Moody preached more on the wrath of God than on His love. Then Moody met a man, and his life was changed from an ordinary evangelist, to one of the greatest the world has ever known.
Moody met the young Englishman, Henry Moorhouse, a real hell-raiser before he came to Jesus at eighteen. He had no opportunity to go to school, so he studied the Bible on his own. He became saturated with God’s Word and the love of God, and was soon preaching to large crowds. Moody invited him to preach in his Chicago church, since he was going to be out of town.
When Moody returned from his trip, his wife said to him, “The people like this man. He preaches differently than you do. He tells the people that God loves them.”
Moody went to the service that night and Moorhouse said, “For seven consecutive nights I have been preaching to you from John 3:16. I have been trying to tell you that God loves you, but my poor stammering tongue is too inadequate. But if God sent an angel to tell us of His love, all that he could say would be, ‘God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.’” Moody later said, “I never forgot those sermons. I preached a different Gospel after that, and I had more power with God and man.”
