A Living God
A Sermon on Exodus 3:6Read more
Blaise Pascal once said, “God is not the God of the philosophers.” Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones expounds on how dangerous this statement is. The philosophers deal in the abstract, but we have a God that is real and can be known personally. When God described himself to Moses as I AM in Exodus 3:6, he was showing himself as the familiar and intimate God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Lloyd-Jones shows us in this sermon that our God is a God of compassion and faithfulness throughout the ages. This is the God who sees our sorrows and looks upon us as a father pities his children and then works his good purposes for us. He remains who he has always been, in covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and he acts out of compassion on our behalf. Do you know this God? Has he interrupted your life? Go to him as your father!

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.
