When the world looks particularly bad, Christians can begin to worry and become fearful, but that is contrary to what God would have them do. In this sermon on Galatians 1:3–5 titled “Who Gave Himself for Our Sins,” Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones reminds that the world is already doomed to death and destruction, but Christians do not need to die with it. God gave his Son to bear the entire weight of God’s curse of sin from His final wrath and destruction of the world. When one considers the poor condition of everything around them, they should not focus on how to change the world but how to change their hearts. God provides a perfect way to be saved from all that is around—He gave His beloved Son to die in their place. Trust in that Savior and whoever believes that the Son of God was made a curse for them is delivered from the curse.
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.
