The Turning Point: But Now

November 24, 2019

Romans 3:21-31 - When God interups human history, everything changes! Up until this point in Romans, Paul has been emphasizing wrath and judgement for all men since we are all guilty of sin and under condemnation. The tone of this letter completely changes in this section with these two small words “but now.” Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones breaks up Romans 3:21-31 into two main sections, outlining that Paul has finally begun to discuss the way of salvation and the characteristics of the way of salvation. After much talk of wrath and destruction, it seems like a relief to see that the Lord has provided a righteousness for us and has revealed it to us. This righteousness is by nothing that we have done because we receive it, only through faith. Both Jews and Gentiles can rejoice because this gift was planned before the foundation of the world, entirely by God’s grace, and open to all men! Dr. Lloyd-Jones points out that everything about salvation points to the glory of God! Any idea that man has concerning salvation should always conform to this one passage of Scripture and nothing we say about salvation should deny any of these statements.

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".
