Man in Sin
A Sermon on Isaiah 1:5-6
Why will you still be struck down?
Why will you continue to rebel?
The whole head is sick,
and the whole heart faint.
From the sole of the foot even to the head,
there is no soundness in it,
but bruises and sores
and raw wounds;
they are not pressed out or bound up
or softened with oil. (ESV)
Listen to this sermon on Isaiah 1:5-6 as Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones addresses the need to know the cause of man's troubles in order to begin to understand the proper remedy. Ease, deliverance, and happiness are often enemies of a proper diagnosis. Come face to face with the cause of your ills. See the root of the problems that trouble our lives today. The true character, nature, and consequences of sin are examined as they affect the whole of life. Man is made blind by sin; all have sinned and are under the very same condemnation. Our head and heart are affected by this sin – there is not a part of man that goes untouched by sin. Learn of the terrible power of sin against correction, teaching, and trials. The exceeding depth of sin is seen in the increased rebellion against what is good and right. Do not be driven into further arrogance in your sin! Man needs an entire renovation and this is the very thing God offers us through His only Son. The power of the devil is greater than that of man; God alone can deliver us from this power. Receive this salvation and be delivered from the power of sin!
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.
