The Gift of God

From the MLJ Archive with Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

The Christian and God's Law

November 22, 2020

Romans 7:1 - How do Christians relate to the Law of God? Since we are saved, can we actually keep the law? What happens when we fail? In this sermon, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones shows us from Romans 7 a birds eye view of how Christians should view this controversial topic in this chapter of Scripture. According to Lloyd-Jones, most problems in the Christian life could be solved if we had a better understanding of Romans chapter 7. With a proper understanding of the teaching of this chapter, the Christian will have a better understanding of sin and it’s severity. Lloyd-Jones states that sanctification by the law is just as impossible as salvation by the Law. According to Paul, the Law actually hinders sanctification. There is only one way to bring fruit before God, and that is if we are married and joined to Jesus Christ. When we understand the relationship of the Law to the Christian, it helps us understand that simple morality and ethical living are not sufficient for salvation or sanctification. One must be joined to Christ for salvation, not simply follow the Law. The Law shows us how sinful we are, but only Christ can save us by His perfect life and His perfect righteousness.

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".
