When Dr. Herbert Lockyer (1886And#8211;1984) was first deciding on a career, he considered becoming an actor. Tall and well-spoken, he seemed a natural for the theater. But the Lord had something better in mind. Instead of the stage, God called Herbert to the pulpit, where as a pastor, Bible teacher, and author of more than fifty books, he touched the hearts and lives of millions of people.Dr. Lockyer held pastorates in Scotland and England for twenty-five years. As pastor of Leeds Road Baptist Church in Bradford, England, he became a leader in the Keswick Higher Life Movement, which emphasized the significance of living in the fullness of the Holy Spirit. This led to an invitation to speak at the Moody Bible Institute's fiftieth anniversary in 1936. His warm reception at that event led to his ministry in the United States. He received honorary degrees from both the Northwestern Evangelical Seminary and the International Academy in London. In 1955, he returned to England, where he lived for many years. He then returned to the United States, where he spent the final years of his life in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with his son, the Rev. Herbert Lockyer Jr., a Presbyterian minister who became his editor.
Cure for Troubled Heartsby Herbert Lockyer
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. (John 14:1)Jesus Christ loves us as no one else ever has. But do we love Him as we should?We hear sermons about Him; we sing about Him; we read about Him; we even try to speak to Him. And yet, for far too many, Jesus is not real. Is it no wonder that our hearts are troubled by the worries, pressures, and sorrows of this world?Best-selling author Dr. Herbert Lockyer reminds us that Jesus' willingness to receive us is the cure for our troubled heart. But His reception of us depends on our reception of Him. Through his teachings, Dr. Lockyer challenges us to enjoy Christ's fullness, and to give Him the place of preeminence in every part of our life and being!
