The Call to Liberty
A Sermon on Deuteronomy 6:23Read more
Listen to the Good News of God delivering His people from bondage to abundance. This sermon on Deuteronomy 6:23 was preached at the FIEC Annual Assembly in 1972. Trace the history of God's deliverance with Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones as he recounts the Exodus from Egypt, the Protestant Reformation, the Evangelical Great Awakenings, and many others. It is always God who is the one freeing His people from bondage. Why are God’s children found to be in bondage? This bondange is never sudden. Learn what happens when things that were meant to be temporary measures become permanent. See the consequences of the hatred and persecution of those opposed to God. Religions of authority versus religions of the Spirit are examined. There is need for form and substance in Christianity, but there danger in this becoming exaggerated. Dr. Lloyd-Jones addresses denominationalism, intellectualism, and traditionalism. There is conflict between the institution and the Spirit. What is the call of the Gospel? God declares liberty for His children. Keep watch so that you do not fail to remember that it was God's hand, not man that delivered you. Do not go back into bondage from where you came, this is the fatal tendency of man.

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.
