Moody: What Must I Do to be Saved?

D.L. Moody - (Dwight Lyman Moody) was born February 5, 1837 in Northfield, Massachusetts, the sixth child (and fifth son) of Edwin and Betsy Holton Moody. He died December 22, 1899 at the age of 62.

He started a church in Chicago that was renamed Moody Church in his honor after his death. Yes, this is the same church that we referenced a few days ago and provided a link to a sermon by the current pastor, Erwin Lutzer. Moody also founded several schools including the Bible Institute that bears his name. HERE’S THE LINK to

D. L Moody adhered to a literal interpretation of the Bible. In 1870 he teamed up with the hymn writer Ira D. Sankey, and they did a series of highly popular revival tours in Britain and the U.S.

And there is so much more that you will want to know about this Servant of God. You can find the ‘more’ in the very interesting summary of his life on Wikipedia. CLICK HERE to read it.

Many sermons which Moody preached are still available in book form and on the Web. Here is one that I think you will find most interesting, encouraging, and convicting. It is titled “What Must I do to be Saved”. HERE’S THE LINK.
