D. L. Moody Quote

The preaching that this world needs most is sermons in shoes that are walking with Jesus Christ.

From Romans 6:4:  “Therefore we were buried with Him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we also might walk in newness of life.”

D. L. Moody (1837-1899), also known as Dwight Lyman Moody, was an American evangelist and Christian teacher.  He is frequently credited with inspiring modern mass revivalism.
