A Sermon on Galatians 1:3-5Read more
One day we will be face to face with God. Are you ready for that day? What is your relationship with God? Do you know him? In this sermon from Galations Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones shares with us that to believe in God is not enough; we must truly know him. He tells us that to know God is to tremble in his presence, because once we know God’s character we understand the depth of our depravity. God has been revealed to us in Scripture and we can come to know him because of the death of his Son. Lloyd-Jones urges us to know God because when we truly know him and repent of ourselves, all of his wrath will turn to mercy and compassion; his terribleness will be seen as holiness. When we truly know God we are adopted into his family and given a hope of everlasting bliss.

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.
