Sermon Description

Sermon Breakdown

  1. We are living in a world of darkness and do not understand life, ourselves, or what is happening in the world.
  2. The gospel offers to deliver us from darkness and give us the light of life.
  3. Jesus says he is the light of the world, and those who follow him will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life.
  4. To follow Jesus, we must first believe he is who he says he is: the Son of God who came from heaven.
  5. We must also believe Jesus came into the world to save us, not condemn us, by dying for our sins.
  6. Finally, we must act on this belief by repenting of our sins, accepting Jesus and his teaching, and following him.
  7. Following Jesus means leaving the world behind, listening to his teaching, and living to please and glorify him.
  8. If we follow Jesus, he will lead us out of darkness into light, from death to life, from hell to heaven.

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.
