His Power from Beginning to End
A Sermon on Ephesians 1:19Read more
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. Dr. Lloyd-Jones 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.

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.
