The Mystery of God
A Sermon on Ephesians 1:1Read more
When you’re at the point of giving up and giving in, would it make a difference if you knew that the same power that raised Christ Jesus from the dead was working for you? This is the mystery Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones addresses as he begins a new sermon series on the book of Ephesians. While the world wrestles with "war at our doorstep", the mystery of salvation leads Christians to worship and give thanks even in the darkest hour. As Dr. Lloyd-Jones explains, the apostle Paul is pleading with believers to seek a new, fresh and deeper understanding of God’s grace and predestined purpose for us. Since the riches of God’s attributes are displayed in our salvation, live always ready and eager to confess the gospel of Jesus Christ! Knowing that or sovereign God reigns supreme over all, and that the death of Christ paid for our sin and He has risen from the grave, we move forward in confidence. Regardless of our circumstance, the greatest need of everyone is to know the truths of the gospel.

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.
