Paul; a Servant of Jesus Christ
A Sermon on Romans 1:1
Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, (ESV)
Salvation cannot be divided, it is an all or nothing equation. No one can receive the gift of salvation without submitting their life to Christ any more than they can both skydive from an airplane and resist the laws of gravity. Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones powerfully shows how the Apostle Paul submitted to the Lordship of Christ and was redeemed by our Master's love. Anyone claiming to be saved, yet rejects Jesus' authority over their life has no basis for assurance of salvation. Our assurance is built on God keeping His promise to fully and forever forgive our sin. Paul's confidence in ministry flowed from this transforming truth explained by The Doctor.
