Sermon Description

In this sermon on Daniel 6:1–28 titled “Let Everyone Worship the God of Daniel,” Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones asks the listener if people talk about the Christian’s God like they talked about “the God of Daniel.” This is the only true and living God. What can the Christian do to proclaim their belief and trust in Him? Look at the faithfulness of Daniel in his work and character. He was a worker not marked by error or fault, but rather as being the best, most reliable, and honest of all workers. Listen to the history of other faithful Christians who proclaimed the gospel of Christ through their exceptional work ethic. Does the gospel have such a clear influence on the Christian’s life? It was obvious that Daniel knew the God he worshipped; he had a clear and specific religion that could be defined. Daniel did not even compromise his religion. There was no superficial excitement. Daniel stood on the gospel principles in the face of death itself. A man of character who thanked God, whatever the circumstances. The Christian is encouraged to know the way of salvation, so that they can rely upon God and be ready to suffer anything for Him.

Itinerant Preaching

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.
