"YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN"

RANKS OF LIFE
A World-Wide Evangelist
DR. WILBUR CHAPMAN, the famous Evangelist,
who preached in many lands, thus relates how he
was born again.
"When the great evangelist, D. L. MOODY, called for
an after-meeting I was one of the first to enter the room,
and to my great joy, Mr. Moody came and sat down
beside me. I confessed that I was not quite sure that I
was saved. He handed me his opened Bible and asked me
to read John 5. 24; and trembling with emotion I read:
'Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth [M]y word,
and believeth on [H]im that sent [M]e, hath everlasting life,
and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from
death unto life.'
"He said to me: 'Do you believe this?' I answered,
'Certainly.' He said, 'Are you a Christian?' I replied,
'Sometimes I think I am, and again I am fearful.' 'Read
it again,' he said. Then he repeated his two questions, and
I had to answer as before. Then Mr. Moody inquired:
'Whom are you doubting?' and then it all came to me
with startling suddenness.
"'Read it again,' said Moody, and for the third time
he asked: 'Do you believe it?' I said, 'Yes, indeed I
do.' 'Well, are you a Christian?' and I answered, 'Yes,
Mr. Moody, I am.' From that day to this I have never
questioned my acceptance with God."
