BROKEN PLACES

   Posted by: pastordiehl   in Uncategorized

One more illustration from Dwight L. Moody (remember, this was from the days before X-ray machines):

When a man has a broken arm, the surgeon must find out the exact spot where the fracture is. He feels along and presses gently with his fingers. “Is it there?” “No.”

“Is it there?” “No.”

Presently, when the surgeon touches another spot, “Ouch!” says the man. He has found the broken part, and it hurts.

It is one thing to hear a man preach down other people’s sins. Men will say, “That is splendid,” and will want all their friends to go and hear the preacher. But, let him touch on their individual sin, and declare, as Nathan did to David, “Thou art the man,” and they say, “I do not like that.” The preacher has touched a sore place.

You can always recognize the broken area of your life, because it hurts when the Word of God touches it.
