A Vain and Empty Life
A Sermon on 1 Peter 1:14
As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, (ESV)
Man unaware of his nature and origin; man governed by lust; other religions pessimistic and without hope; man without Christ has nothing to look forward to; the emptiness of 'withered dreams'; Christ gives a new orientation and a new way of living.
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.
