What sets the Christian apart from everyone else? According to Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones in this sermon on Philippians 3:12-17, it is the Christian's knowledge and pursuit of Christ that separates him from all others. For Christianity is not about external actions, nor is it about passionless religiosity, but Christianity is about Christ Jesus. It was the Apostle Paul who came to know Christ when Jesus appeared to him and transformed him. This was an immediate interaction with the risen Christ who called Paul to a life of service and suffering as a Christian. Jesus calls all believers to forsake their pride and arrogance, and to trust in Him. This sermon asks us: do you have a knowledge of Christ that transforms you? Are you trusting in Jesus, or yourself? For the world in its fallen state trusts in itself to solve all the world’s problems, but the Christian is totally different. The Christian flees all vain worldly wisdom and trusts in God. Only Christianity shows men how they ought to live, only Christianity can provide true answers to life’s deepest questions. This is because only Christianity offers the true hope of the Gospel and salvation from all sin and evil.
