The Gospel Exalted
1Paul, a bond-servant of Christ Jesus, called as an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God,
1Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,
Can natural abilities and good deeds save? Throughout history, humanity has searched for salvation in any way other than Jesus. No matter what talent or treasure a person may have, sin continues to contaminate all their good efforts. As Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones explains in this sermon on Romans 1:1 titled “A Man Called Paul,” the only way of salvation is through Jesus Christ. The apostle Paul knew this great salvation and gave his life to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ. Church history shows how God prepared his mind and logic to use his natural gifts in a powerful way to tell Gentiles about Jesus. Those who are curious how God will use their life to advance His kingdom are encouraged to listen in as Dr. Lloyd-Jones walks through this message from Paul.
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.
