Union - its Privileges and Purpose

The Nature of Sin

January 3, 2021

Romans 7:5-6 - What is the next greatest power after God himself? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones argues that it is the power of sin. As he breaks down Paul’s message in Romans 7:5-6, Dr. Lloyd-Jones outlines several key terms and defines them in the context of the message. It is essential for the reader to understand the terms in order to understand the apostle’s argument, the apostle’s doctrine of the law, and to understand the doctrine of salvation and sanctification. For instance, the term “flesh” can be defined many ways but Dr. Lloyd-Jones believes that Paul uses this term to refer to the opposite of what it means to have life in the Spirit. Those who are in the flesh are unregenerate and cannot please God. When Paul refers to the “motions of sin,” he is talking about our passions, affections and lusting. All natural appetites were created and given by God, but the law aggravates these appetites and we allow them to control us, which leads to sin and death. However, Christ is working for us in the members of our body. We have died with Christ and have died to the power of sin!

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".
