The Testimony of Christ
A Sermon on 1 Corinthians 1:4-9Read more
So many people claim to be Christians but they are truly Christ-less . Learn of the importance of foundational principles. A Christian is one who has received and believed in Christ, one who has fellowship with Him, and one who is waiting for His return. Christ came to bear witness to the truth. Listen to this sermon on 1 Corinthians 1:4-9 by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones as he preaches on the testimony of Christ. What did Christ have to testify about? The question of the person of Christ is crucial – two natures in one flesh, God's own son. Do you believe the testimony of Christ? We are not our own, and we have no right to do what we want with ourselves. We have been rescued by Christ! If you have the Son of God, then you have eternal life. This Gospel is not simply a theory or personal opinion; it is the testimony of God Himself. It is a tragedy to deny these things. Learn what Christ says about God, you, and the only way of being right before God. Are you ready to stand in His presence? Christ was made sin for us!

4I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus, 5that in everything you were enriched in Him, in all speech and all knowledge, 6just as the testimony concerning Christ was confirmed in you, 7so that you are not lacking in any gift, as you eagerly await the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, 8who will also confirm you to the end, blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

About Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was a Welsh evangelical minister who preached and taught in the Reformed tradition. His principal ministry was at Westminster Chapel, in central London, from 1939-1968, where he delivered multi-year expositions on books of the bible such as Romans, Ephesians and the Gospel of John. In addition to the MLJ Trust’s collection of 1,600 of these sermons in audio format, most of these great sermon series are available in book form (including a 14 volume collection of the Romans sermons), as are other series such as "Spiritual Depression", "Studies in the Sermon on the Mount" and "Great Biblical Doctrines". He is considered by many evangelical leaders today to be an authority on biblical truth and the sufficiency of Scripture.
