What is different about the Christian life from every other life? In this sermon on Romans 7:4, you will hear from Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones that it is no external matter. He says that the Christian life is one that has been totally reoriented because the Christian has passed from death into life by believing in the Gospel. The Christian is not simply one who acts differently, but he is one that has been renewed in Christ and made a new creature. This radical change is brought about because Jesus died not come to improve behavior, but to make new men and women. Have you been transformed in Christ? This is the question that we all must ask, for only by believing in the person and work of Christ can anyone be saved! For it is Christ who stands at the center of life and it is Christ who calls us all to believe in Him. He came and died in order that sinners might be saved and brought to life. He rose from the dead as a testament to the power of His message and Gospel! This message of Christ is the most important message you can ever hear, for it is the words of eternal life.

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.
