How do we experience God? Chaos and confusion results among Christians as religious movements emerge based upon unique experiences. In this sermon, Dr. Marytn Lloyd-Jones desires to counter this confusion by discerning the essence of true Christian experience. He seeks to do this by looking at the great turning point in the life of Jacob in Genesis 32. While he acknowledges that any standardized Christian experience is unhelpful, Lloyd-Jones affirms there are broad elements which can be used to authenticate our experience. True Christian experience will penetrate the heart of the individual and therefore disrupt the person’s entire life. With true Christin experience the attitude of the person moves beyond general interest in religion to being dominated with the one thing that matters: knowing their Creator. All these things result in a changed person or a new man. They become someone who knows they have peace with God. Someone who is humbled by the presence of God. Hear this challenging message as you consider your own Christian experience.
