His Power from Beginning to End
A Sermon on Ephesians 1:19
and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might (ESV)
Do you need God’s power just a little bit? Is it only God working as we ask Him to work that sustains us as Christians? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones argues in this message we would not stand a single hour if it wasn’t for the power of God. The Christian life is only sustained by the continuing working of God in us. The Doctor makes a compelling case from Scripture that this must be so. If we consider what we are up against in our daily life, we are forced to acknowledge we are in desperate need for God’s power to work in us. The power against us - the world, the flesh, and the devil - is tremendous. It is only matched and exceeded by God’s power. But it is not enough to simply think we need power against these forces. This would be difficult enough. There is also a call by God towards holiness and to keep the law of Christ. We are foolish to think we will attain perfection and glory on our own power or with little power from God. Rejoice as you listen to this powerful sermon on the nature of God’s power working within His people.
