Christianity is a historical faith. While our world is full of other religions and “spiritual experiences,” Christianity is set apart by the objectivity of events brought about by our Triune God. These events - the history of Israel, the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus, the day of Pentecost, the global spread of the gospel - are objective events that point creation back to God. In this sermon, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones takes us back to the early church in Acts 4:31 and shows us we do not take Christianity up on our accord or power, rather, it takes us up. We see the apostles, who were not well-educated or eloquent men. Yet God uses these ordinary men to spread the good news and Christianity flourished. Acts emphasizes this as the work of our Trinitarian God - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. This is the basis of the apostles hope and confession! And this is the foundation of our great hope, as well. Our subjective experiences don’t rule our faith, says Dr. Lloyd-Jones. The objective reality of our history, as well as the ongoing work of revival, reminds us that our living God actively cares for this world.
