Paul; a Servant of Jesus Christ
A Sermon on Romans 1:1
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,
Salvation cannot be divided; it is an all or nothing equation. No one can receive the gift of salvation without submitting their life to Christ any more than they can both skydive from an airplane and resist the laws of gravity. In the sermon “Paul: A Servant of Jesus Christ” on Romans 1:1, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones powerfully shows how the apostle Paul submitted to the Lordship of Christ and was redeemed by our Master's love. Anyone claiming to be saved yet rejects Jesus’s authority over their life has no basis for assurance of salvation. The Christian’s assurance is built on God keeping His promise to fully and forever forgive their sin. Listen as Dr. Lloyd-Jones explains how Paul’s confidence in ministry flowed from this transforming truth.
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.
