Man; His Problem and the Answer
A Sermon on Galatians 1:3-5
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. (ESV)
We so often consider sin as a general problem, but rarely stop to consider its personal impact on ourselves. In this sermon from Galations 1:3-5, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones sets our minds on an eternal track. We are first and foremost souls with eternal life before us, anything physical in this life is merely temporary. As Christians we are created with eternal worth and dignity. Have you stopped to consider yourself and who you are rather than sin in the world at large? What does God think of you? This ought to be our greatest concern as it is the only opinion that holds eternal value. God will ask us on the last day, “what have you done with this soul I have given you?” Are you ready to respond?
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.
