The Book of Romans Series
Fridays will be set apart for an amazing study on the Book of Romans by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones. He is considered to be one of the greatest expository preachers of the 20th century. Here is a link to the first sermon on The Book of Romans. You can listen to the audio there or download the file and listen. I would recommend reading the Scripture you see below and meditate or think on it. Listen to the sermon...just listen. Then, if time permits, listen to it again and take notes. It will enrich your life as you grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit to the glory of God our Father! Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, (ESV) - Romans 1:1 Can natural abilities and good deeds save? Throughout history, humanity has searched for salvation in any way other than Jesus. No matter what talent or treasure a person may have, sin continues to contaminate all their good efforts. As Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones explains in this sermon on Romans 1:1 titled “A Man Called Paul,” the only way of salvation is through Jesus Christ. The apostle Paul knew this great salvation and gave his life to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ. Church history shows how God prepared his mind and logic to use his natural gifts in a powerful way to tell Gentiles about Jesus. Those who are curious how God will use their life to advance His kingdom are encouraged to listen in as Dr. Lloyd-Jones walks through this message from Paul.
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was a Welsh evangelical minister who preached and taught in the Reformed tradition. His principal ministry was at Westminster Chapel, in central London, from 1939-1968, where he delivered multi-year expositions on books of the bible such as Romans, Ephesians and the Gospel of John. In addition to the MLJ Trust’s collection of 1,600 of these sermons in audio format, most of these great sermon series are available in book form (including a 14 volume collection of the Romans sermons), as are other series such as "Spiritual Depression", "Studies in the Sermon on the Mount" and "Great Biblical Doctrines". He is considered by many evangelical leaders today to be an authority on biblical truth and the sufficiency of Scripture.
