Listen to the message of the beloved Son of God in this sermon on Luke 4:18 and learn as Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones discusses the disease in mankind — sin. This disease has many symptoms, and there are numerous manifestations of sin in man. “Do you regard this Gospel as the greatest good news you have ever heard?” You must know you are sick if you are going to be healed! “Sin is something that leads to a broken-hearted condition.” Are you rejoicing in the name of Jesus Christ? If not, you must see yourself and be broken-hearted. Christ’s coming does judge us, but He did not come only to judge. He brought salvation to us! He came to heal. How does Christ heal us? What does salvation contain? Listen as Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones proclaims the Word of the ultimate physician. Christ came because man was a failure. Christ came not only to offer comfort, but to cure man of the disease of sin; He came to reconcile us to God. “You are not healed by Christ if you are not rejoicing.” Are you trusting Him? This perfect and complete work turns ashes into beauty. Do not rest until you are clothed with the pure white garments of Christ.

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.
