Do you know "the God who acts"? Listen as Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones preaches from Acts 2:1–2 and asks probing questions to search the heart. The peace the world searches for can only be found on the other side of submission to Christ. While the world lives in fear of death, Christians can see “beyond the veil” by learning from God’s word. Christianity is about what Jesus began, is currently doing, and will bring to completion. “Any notion that Christianity is merely the result of something that we do is always completely wrong; it is always the activity of God,” shares Dr. Lloyd-Jones. One cannot reason their way to God, nor can they approach Him on their own terms. He revealed Himself to Abram, Moses, David, the prophets, and now to His people today. His believers are invited to receive His free gift of grace if they repent.

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.
