What seperates true repentance from worldly remorse? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones addresses the incredible weight of these topics that seperate eternal life from death. Repentance is a turning from sin to Christ. It is a genuine regret and full confession of our sin. But how does it differ from worldly remorse? Dr. Lloyd-Jones carefully explains that while repentance involves feelings of anguish and guilty remorse, it is repentance that results in a change of mind. Wordly remorse will cry, but not forsake and turn away from sinful activities. The gospel message we proclaim must call others to submit their life to Christ, not just feel bad about their sin. Only once we have been saved can we come to know the joy of discipelship, forgiveness and move forward in exemplary Christian living. For our gospel message to be believeable, the world must see our transformed lives, lives redeemed from eternal death.
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.
