Son of God; Son of Man
A Sermon on Acts 4:12
And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (ESV)
All men are in dire need of salvation because all men are under the judgment of God. Because of the fall, all men are born in sin and in guilt. They must both get rid of their polluted nature and their guilt before a holy God. How can a sinful man be reconciled with God? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones joyfully and powerfully states, the great truth of the Gospel is the forgiveness of sins and a new nature in Christ. By the Gospel the whole world is made new. But men in their pride and arrogance reject the Gospel and its God. They believe that they can make the world a better place by their own endeavors. They do not believe that they are fallen sinners in need of a savior and a new life. They reject the idea that only through Christ can we be saved. But the message of Christ, and Christ alone as the means of salvation is the Gospel. This is the message of salvation from Genesis to Revelation. It is the God man who come to save his people and bring about the kingdom of God.
