The Riches of His Grace
A Sermon on Romans 10:11-13
For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (ESV)
In this (appropriately) rich sermon, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones continues unfolding the apostle Paul’s argument for the inclusion of gentiles in salvation. Working from Romans 10:11-13, his second point in the series draws from the glorious fact that the same Lord Jesus Christ, who is Lord over all, is rich in grace to all who call upon Him. Since salvation depends entirely upon God and His power to forgive, there is hope for anyone. It’s the great central theme of the Scriptures – foretold by the Prophets, brought about by Jesus in the Gospel, and proclaimed by the Apostles and the early church. What does this mean for us today? It doesn't matter how much you've sinned or how profound your ignorance is, the riches of God’s grace are endless and He is sufficient to give to all; there is no work or effort you can add to your salvation because His riches in salvation are all-sufficient. All worldly distinctions and prejudices are foolish because God is rich to all, without distinction, and there is nothing you can ever need that cannot be found in this endlessly rich Savior. Christian, are you enjoying His riches?
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.
