Listen to this sermon from Mark 1:14-15 as Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones presents God's message that calls man to listen to the truth. Man's whole notion of Christianity is wrong. The depth of the knowledge of God's truth is far from being known. The modern position is where we find ourselves without God and without a proper guide. “It is better to travel hopefully than to arrive” – listen to this modern thrill of investigation, rather than interest in the truth itself. Man is always ready to worship man, but this must not be. Learn that all your questions have already been answered, and your problems have already been solved. Receive the revelation of God; His Gospel announces a plan and a purpose. All we need has already been given. The problem of man today is the same problem of man that’s always been. Christianity is the plan of God acting out in history. Our salvation depends on what God has done in Christ, not what we understand; this is the Gospel. Man is a slave of sin, but Christ has broken our chains to set us free for His Kingdom. Are you so blinded by sin and Satan that you’re a lost soul without knowledge of Hell? Stand blameless before God in 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.
