This Great Salvation
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)
What is Scripture all about? What makes the writings of the Old and New Testament unique? In this sermon Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones preaches from Romans 10:11-13. Paul appeals to the Old Testament prophet, Isaiah, to show that salvation is for all who believe, both Jew and Gentile. So, what is Scripture about? It is about the one unified plan of salvation brought to pass in Jesus Christ. It speaks as one voice to humanity and declares that God has acted in Jesus Christ so that sinners can be saved! Those who want to do away with the Old Testament are in great danger of not only disregarding God’s holy Word, but they are also in danger of perverting the message of salvation. For the whole Old Testament looks forward to when Jesus would come and die to save Jews and Gentiles. Have you accepted this one and glorious message as the only means of salvation? The message of Scripture is not an irrelevant one, for it is the only message of salvation and forgiveness of sins.
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.
