Be Ye Reconciled to God
A Sermon on 2 Corinthians 5:6Read more
Learn of the calmness and assurance that comes with this Christian Gospel. There is a confidence that comes with believing. All things are of God and for God. In this sermon on 2 Corinthians 5:6-17, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones teaches that the first result of this new creation that Christianity proclaims is a new perspective. Why do we need to be changed? Why do we need a new view? Listen as Dr. Lloyd-Jones proclaims the necessity of this radical reorientation. Look at the example of Paul. Examine the natural view of man versus the biblical view of man. You cannot face the end of life without first accepting this teaching. You will never know the comfort of the Scriptures if you do not accept it from beginning to end. Is man merely an animal? The world thinks that there is nothing outside of the concrete and material world, but there is an entirely other reality beyond man’s comprehension. Do you glory in appearance or in heart? The world thinks that man is essentially and fundamentally good. Learn to think of man in terms of his relationship to God, and see man in the context of God. Man is not the arbiter of his faith. God alone saves.

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.
