The Condition of Modern Man

1/6/2021
James 4:13-16 — What does the Bible say about the world’s problems? The world gives many diagnostics to explain its many ills. The rationalist says that man’s biggest problem is that he does not use his reason. Others say that man has yet to overcome his baser desires. But what does the Bible say? Why, according to God’s Word, do men kill one another and oppress each other? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones looks at James 4:1 to find answers to these questions. Here, we see that man’s problem is that...

From Whence Come Wars

I Shake not only the Earth

Hebrews 12:25-29 — In this sermon on Hebrews 12:25-29, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones starts by addressing a common objection of the Bible. Many contemporary men do not believe the Bible and its value, simply because it’s old. It is irrelevant to us because it is obsolete. However, Dr. Lloyd-Jones teaches that the Bible is ever relevant, ever contemporary, and ever true because it is the everlasting God who speaks about His Son, Jesus Christ. Human history, says Dr. Lloyd-Jones, tells us that man...

The writer knew...

The Choice that Faces Man

12/29/2020

A True Belief

Hebrews 6:7-8 — Attending church is not sufficient for salvation! The greatest sin in modern man is that he lives as if he owns himself, but he does not. Listen to Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones as he declares we are not our own in this sermon on Hebrews 6:7-8. Look at the illustration of two fields. The whole world was created by God and made for Him.

Jesus : Human and Divine

Hebrews 2:14 — Listen to this Christmas message on Hebrews 2:14 as Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones remembers He who is our Savior and salvation. Do not think of the Christian life in any general way apart from Christ. Through death, Christ destroyed him who had the power of death. Death lost its sting! Man's greatest temptation is to leave out the “wonderful works of God.” Salvation is the result of God’s activity. There is great trouble when we become doubtful of the person of Christ. Look at the...

A New and Living Way

Hebrews 10:19-22 — Are you unhappy in your faith? Genuine Christians may lack joy in Christ as they lack certainty of their relationship with God. In Hebrews 10:19-22, the writer encourages the reader to have full assurance and draw near to Christ. Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones addresses the chief problem: our conscience condemns us. In one’s nature, man is unable to come before the throne of God in prayer because of sin. Dr. Lloyd-Jones highlights the Old Testament temple practices of entering the...

Not Ashamed to Call Them Brethren

12/26/2020
Hebrews 2:11 — In this sermon on Hebrews 2:11 from Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, he preaches on the wonders of Christ and His shared inheritance with the redeemed. The theme of the book of Hebrews is the preeminence of Jesus Christ, Dr. Lloyd-Jones tells us. The wonder of the Gospel is that Jesus is not ashamed to call us brethren. Though we are but humans, the Lord God calls us brethren because of the work of Jesus Christ on the cross. Dr. Lloyd-Jones proclaims that humans are the sanctified, and...

Hebrews 8:5 — Listen to Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones as he proclaims from Hebrews 8:5 the great commission that was given to Moses, and ultimately to all preachers of the Gospel. Where did Moses' authority and message come from? Look at how God commissioned Moses with a detailed plan; He has done the same for us. The quest for truth cannot start with modern man; Christianity must have a different starting point. You are invited to come back to the revelation of God Himself. Moses has no authority...

The Cross of Christ

What does it...

The Wonder of the Cross

Hebrews 1:1-3 — In this sermon on Hebrews 1:1-3, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones exposits the book of Hebrews and carefully explains the great theme of the entire epistle: the glory and preeminence of Jesus Christ. A special attention is given to the latter part of verse 3 as the author of Hebrew only notes Jesus’s earthly ministry of purification of sin. The purification and cleansing of sin, as Dr. Lloyd-Jones explains, has to be the center of the focus of Christian faith because it perfectly...
