The Lord Jesus Christ
What is at the center of the Christian faith? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones answers this question in this sermon. He says that unlike all other religions, Christianity is centered around the one man Jesus Christ. Jesus is not simply a generic moral teacher or wise man, but He is in fact God incarnate who died for sinners. This is why it is so vital that we understood who Jesus is and what He has done for us. It is not a matter of doctrinal speculation, but the doctrine of Christ at the center of the Christian life and Gospel. We must understand rightly that Jesus is both truly God and truly man without mixture. What does this mean to each and every one of us? First, the doctrine of Christ tells us that God Himself has come to die and save us. God has become man in order to redeem fallen and evil sinners. Furthermore, it tells us that Jesus is a perfect high priest because as both God and man, He can intercede on our behalf. Finally, this sermon calls us all to ask the question, do I believe? Am I trusting in Jesus? This is the most important question any of us can ask!
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.
