Sermon Description

What draws people to Jesus? What are people finding in Jesus that answers their deepest needs? As Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones proclaims, it is in Christ that we find forgiveness of sin and peace with God. The world is in total darkness and despair, not knowing its own need for salvation. It pursues nothing but pleasure and the fleeting pleasures of this life. Not even the most complex philosophies offer any lasting satisfaction. All this comes to nothing because on the last day Christ will return and judge those who do not know Him as Lord and Savior. The answer to this great problem is to turn from sin and to Christ Jesus. Only in Christ can we find the kindness, love and forgiveness that our hearts crave. Christian’s are those who by God’s grace have forsaken their sins and rest in Christ. Listen along as The Doctor teaches us how only Jesus Christ gives the living water that truly and finally satisfies because only Jesus can make sinners right with God.

The Book of John

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.
