A Full Assurance of Hope
A Sermon on Hebrews 6:11-12Read more
The Christian was always meant to have full assurance and happiness. Listen to Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones as he addresses the problem on translation, faith, understanding, and hope in this sermon on Hebrews 6:11-12. Dive into the epistles and discover how they were written for the assurance of believers. See the circumstances of uncertainty that surrounded these believers and what hope they received. Dr. Lloyd-Jones touches on the three assurances of faith, understanding, and hope, while focusing more on the full assurance of hope. We ought to preach sanctification by preaching the hope and the glory of Christ. This is not a message that is subjective to the feelings of man. Christianity is primarily and essentially other-worldly. Put aside your earthly prospects to follow Him. Do you know of the "first fruits"? Soak yourself in and meditate on the Scriptures. “Endure by seeing Him who is invisible.” Faith is the substance, and hope is the outcome of this faith. What is meant by the "state of hope"? When all else gives way, Christ is the solid rock that we can stand on. God provides the diligence and faith that is necessary. Look to Him and have full assurance unto the end!

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.
