Declared to Be the Son of God
A Sermon on Romans 1:3-4
concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, (ESV)
Is Jesus really God? Some say he became divine at his baptism. Others suggest he became the Son of God at his resurrection. The deity of Jesus Christ has always been challenged, not by those who are saved, but by those who want to remain in their sin. In this sermon, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones argues that Jesus is and always was the unique Son of God from the beginning. In order to do the will of God the Father, his power and glory were hidden yet He never became less than God. As the Apostle Paul proclaims in Romans 1:3-4, the resurrection of Jesus proves that He is God! Like a son of the king ceremonially announced as heir of the kingdom, Jesus is declared to be the sovereign over all creation and conquerer of death. Listen as the Doctor explains that the resurrection of Jesus Christ announces His incarnate deity. Raised in power and glory, Jesus is formally appointed as the Christ, the Lord of all creation. “Veiled in flesh, the Godhead see; Hail, the incarnated Deity!” Come and see Christ our Lord.
