What is a Christian? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones answers saying the Christian is the one sees his sin and brokenness. He is the one sees his weakness and flees to Christ, abandoning all efforts of saving himself. Regardless of one’s background and upbringing, what unifies all of mankind is their fallen nature and their need for redemption in Christ. All men are born in Adam and are children of wrath. It is out of this mass of fallen mankind form which Christians are saved through the work of Christ. It is Christ that delivers men from sin and gives them new life in the midst of their distress. So, all Christians are saved through the same blood, Savior, and God. This common salvation applies to all people regardless of their personality. It saves all people regardless of their ethnic background and cultural background. The peace that Christ brings applies to all men in all times and in all places. This is because Jesus Christ fulfills the deepest need of all men. He delivers all who cry out and believe from their sin and brokenness by leading them into the heavenly Jerusalem, making them a new people by the power of His blood. Jesus delivers us from all brokenness and sin by the power of His gospel.
