The Book of Psalms
What does it mean to have a broad perspective on life? Many criticize Christianity for being closed-minded and leading to a narrow life, but in this sermon on Psalm 118:5, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones shows that Scripture has a different view of the Christian life. Rather than being narrow and closed-minded, the Christian is the one who truly understands the world and who has true and lasting joy because he knows God! He trusts in Jesus Christ for the salvation from sin. The Christian has received joy and lives in this joy because God has given him a great gift of grace. The narrow life is the life that has no hope after death and no joy in life’s creator. This sermon is a call to obey the Gospel of God by believing in Jesus Christ and to find true and lasting peace as a child of God. Have you renounced the old life of sin and come to Christ? Have you forsaken ever saving yourself and come to God? If not, you are on the path to destruction apart from God and His goodness. There is no salvation and true peace part from faith in Jesus Christ.
