A Sermon on Hebrews 6:7-8

For land that has drunk the rain that often falls on it, and produces a crop useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God. But if it bears thorns and thistles, it is worthless and near to being cursed, and its end is to be burned. (ESV)

Attending church is not sufficient for salvation! The greatest sin in modern man is that he lives as if he owns himself, but he does not. Listen to Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones as he declares we are not our own in this sermon on Hebrews 6:7-8. Look at the illustration of two fields. The whole world was created by God and made for Him. Every life will go on to judgement in relation to our response to this Gospel. The value of one soul is such that we cannot put too much emphasis on listening. Reject this word and you are utterly hopeless. It is the reaction to the treatment of the Gospel that distinguishes Christians from the rest of the world. Contrast the dramatic difference between the two products produced. Examine that which pleases the Creator of this world. The natural life alone is useless before God! Look at the marks of a true believer. Repent and believe this message of God's salvation in Christ. It is not enough to simply know the Gospel. You must deny yourself and take up your cross – follow Him and leave everything else. Turn from your old nature and follow Him while there is still time!

Hebrews 6:7-8, New American Standard Bible

7For ground that drinks the rain which often falls on it and produces vegetation useful to those for whose sake it is also tilled, receives a blessing from God; 8but if it yields thorns and thistles, it is worthless and close to being cursed, and it ends up being burned.

Hebrews 6:7-8, King James Version

7For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: 8But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.

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.
