Woe Unto Thee
A Sermon on Matthew 11:21-28Read more
What do you think Jesus meant when He said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened”? What is the burden that Jesus was speaking of? In this sermon on Matthew 11:21-28, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones preaches on the necessity of seeing Christ’s gentleness as well as His severeness. Many today preach only on God’s love, believing that a loving God cannot possibly condemn anyone. If that were the case, what was the point of Jesus’ death on the cross? Dr. Lloyd-Jones dispels the false idea that God cannot punish sinners, and instead shows us that God must punish sin, whether that is through Jesus, or through the sinner himself. It is the Gospel that determines who takes the wrath of God. So then what is your standing before God? This is the most important question a person can ask themselves, and your eternal soul depends on the correct answer. God has promise that He will give salvation and rest to those who humble themselves and believe God is who He says He is. However, for those who try to shape God into their own being, Dr. Lloyd-Jones reminds us that there is no salvation or rest. Which are you? By the end of this sermon, you should have a clear answer.
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.
