Listen to this sermon on 1 Peter 1:23 as Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones talks about how we can be born again by an incorruptible seed. Look at the Word of God that lives and abides forever! Do you want a word of comfort for this modern world? Scripture is not out of date. it is the very Word of God, not mere opinion or prophesy of men. What is the origin of the universe, man, and the design of creation? Hear of the intelligence behind this marvelous creation and answer each of these questions by looking at the Bible. Education and money cannot end war. Man has rebelled against God and will never find peace and happiness apart from Him. God made man in His own image to live in a certain way. Scripture addresses man and his condition before God. The word of man will always end, but God's Word will continue speaking forever. God is the ultimate judge for eternity and will examine us, not on our knowledge of the evening news, but on our knowledge and glory of God. Do not reject this word! Man cannot be just without God. Look forward to glory everlasting, an incorruptible inheritance, reserved for us in heaven.

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.
