But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. (ESV)

If you were to take a look at your life would you say that you have wasted it, or used it profitably? In all your working and striving in life, what is the final return on our investment? The Bible gives us a framework for determining whether or not we are currently living a successful or a foolish life. Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones will bring us to Paul’s letterin Romans 6:21 to help us figure out what, or who, we are living for. There are only two choices that the Bible gives us when we answer this question. We are either living for the world – in sin and death – or we are living for God and eternal life. If you are living in sin, Dr. Lloyd-Jones will plead with you to consider the end of your work. What will be of you after death? This is the unavoidable question that we all must face, yet we are tempted to put off answering until it is too late. Are you tired of the shame from the previous night, from being a slave to the world and the overall burden of sin? If so, there is hope in the life of God. Come, listen to what the truly good life is.

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.
