The Spiritual Outlook
A Sermon on Romans 8:14
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. (ESV)
What comfort is there for the believer in knowing the Holy Spirit yearns for our sanctification? What privilege do we have as believers knowing that the Holy Spirit is so concerned for us? This is one reminder, among others, by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones in his sermon on Romans 8:14. In this message, he explores further what the Apostle Paul means by being “led by the Spirit of God.” As the Spirit operates on the mind, heart, and will of the Christian, He gives full, final emancipation from sin. But how may a person know whether the Spirit is leading him or her? Dr. Lloyd-Jones supplies guidance on this vital question. In short, the Spirit leads us to a total new outlook on life. Do you desire God’s glory? What about love for the people of God? How do you respond sin? Do you actively engage in the mortification of the deeds of the body? The Spirit always leads us in the direction of the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. How about you? Are you being led by the Spirit? Listen as Dr. Lloyd-Jones both challenges and encourages the church in this teaching on the work of the Holy Spirit.
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.
