The Nature of Sin

January 3, 2021
From the MLJ Archive with Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Life in the Spirit

January 10, 2021

Romans 7:6 - What is it that makes Christians different from others? Christians have been granted a new mind and new desires by the Holy Spirit. This new life in Christ puts believers in a new relationship to the Law of Moses, for now the Law is written upon the heart of every believer. This creates a heart of worship that is not focused on the externals of religious acts, but it is focused on the orientation of the heart. For true worship flows out of a heart renewed and freed from the curse of the Law and the power of sin and flesh. However, preaching from Romans 7:6, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones is emphatic that this new relationship to the Law does not bring about antinomianism, for all of God’s commands are good and just. It means that Christ has fulfilled the Law and given believers a new heart that has new desires. So, the end of the Law is not licensing to live in sin, but it comes with the joy and privilege of seeking to love God and neighbor out of the new person that Christ Jesus is fashioning all believers to be. For all sanctification cannot be separated from salvation and glorification. This is because Christ Jesus is the one who begins and completes our salvation.

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".
