Declared to Be the Son of God

February 24, 2019
From the MLJ Archive with Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Jesus Christ; Our Lord

March 3, 2019

Romans 1:3-5 - Christians are forgiven of sin so that we may follow our Savior. Some today reject this notion that one must submit to Jesus as Lord. They argue salvation is by grace, therefore obedience is not necessary. While salvation is completely by grace through faith, we must not separate our Christian faith from obedience to Jesus. Can one accept Jesus as Savior and not as Lord? In this sermon, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones answers that question with a resounding no. The earliest Christians were persecuted over this word, “Lord.” For them, Jesus was not only Savior, he was also Lord. The very nature of believing the Gospel becomes an issue of submission. We are commanded to believe, thus we obey the Gospel. Lloyd-Jones shows that the only way one can accept Jesus is in this full sense: as both Savior and Lord. Faith is obedience to the Word of God. If we reject the Word of God, we reject God, making him a liar. Receiving the Gospel is, therefore, to obey him and receive Jesus as Lord. The entire Christian faith depends on the recognition of this. This is what makes one a Christian. This is the work of God, that you believe on him who he has sent. Jesus Christ, my Lord.

About Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899–1981) has been described as "a great pillar of the 20th century Evangelical Church". Born in Wales, and educated in London, he was a brilliant student who embarked upon a short, but successful, career as a medical doctor at the famous St Bartholemew's Hospital. However, the call of Gospel ministry was so strong that he left medicine in order to become minister of a mission hall in Port Talbot, South Wales. Eventually he was called to Westminster Chapel in London, where thousands flocked to hear his "full-blooded" Gospel preaching, described by one hearer as "logic on fire". With some 1600 of his sermons recorded and digitally restored, this has left a legacy which is now available for the blessing of another generation of Christians around the world — "Though being dead he still speaks".
