Working Out Our Own Salvation-Martin Lloyd Jones

  We are considering these two verses for the second time because we have found that it is impossible to deal with them adequately in just one study. I have suggested that perhaps the best way of dividing up this statement would be to look at it in three ways: first of all, generally: then […]

What is Revival?-Martin Lloyd Jones

  We can define it as a period of unusual blessing and activity in the life of the Christian Church. Revival means awakening, stimulating the life, bringing it to the surface again. It happens primarily in the Church of God, and amongst believing people, and it is only secondly something that affects those that are […]

The Wrath of God 2 -Martin Lloyd Jones

  Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. – Ephesians 2:3 We now come to look at the apostle’s final statement about man in […]

The Wrath Of God-Martin Lloyd Jones

  We now come to look at the apostle’s final statement about man in sin; and that is, that he is under the wrath of God. In other words Paul deals with sin, as sin affects man’s standing before God. He shows what God says and thinks and does about man in that condition which […]

The Salt Of The Earth-Martin Lloyd Jones

  We now come to a new and fresh section in the Sermon on the Mount. In verses 3-12 our Lord and Saviour has been delineating the Christian character. Here at verse 13 He moves forward and applies His description. Having seen what the Christian is, we now come to consider how the Christian should […]

The Real Reason for Revival-Martin Lloyd Jones

  And Moses said unto the Lord, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight. Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have […]

The Parable Of The Prodigal Son-Martin Lloyd Jones

  THERE IS NO PARABLE OR SAYING OF OUR LORD that is quite as well-known and as familiar as the parable of the prodigal son. No parable is quite so frequently quoted in religious discussions or made use of to support theories and contentions. It is truly astonishing to note the almost endless number of […]

The Light Of The World-Martin Lloyd Jones

  In verse 14 we have, surely, one of the most astounding and extraordinary statements about the Christian that was ever made, even by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Himself. When you consider the setting, and remember the people to whom our Lord uttered these words, they do indeed become most remarkable. It is […]

The Call To Battle-Martin Lloyd Jones

  THERE IS NOTHING that is more urgently important for all who claim the name of Christian, than to grasp and to understand the teaching of this particular section of Scripture. I say those “who claim the name of Christian,” because the Apostle’s words are obviously addressed to Christian people, and to Christian people only. […]

Spiritual Strength-Martin Lloyd Jones

  “I find I am very feeble,” says Paul, “my energy seems to flag and sometimes I feel I have no life blood in me at all. But . . . because of this relationship, I find He infuses it into me. He knows my every state and condition, He knows exactly what I need. […]

Purpose of the Law-Martin Lloyd Jones

  In other words, the whole function of the Law is to define sin, to reveal its nature; and that is why we are without any excuse at all. The law is in our hearts; but that is not clear enough, so God made it explicit. He had defined it, He has underlined it, He […]

Kingdom of God-Martin Lloyd Jones

  The kingdom of God really means the reign of God; it means the law and the rule of God. . . . In one sense the kingdom of God has already come. It came when the Lord Jesus was here. He said, “If I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt […]

Jonathan Edwards and the Crucial Importance of Revival-Martin Lloyd Jones

  Jonathan Edwards and the Crucial Importance of Revival By Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones An address delivered at the Puritan and Westminster Conference of 1976, and published in The Puritans: Their Origins and Successors, by Banner of Truth Trust. In dealing with Jonathan Edwards and the crucial importance of revival, we are really but continuing and […]

Jesus On Prayer-Martin Lloyd Jones

  IN MATTHEW 6:5-8, we come to an example taken by our Lord to illustrate His teaching concerning piety or the conduct of the religious life. This is the theme which He considers in the first eighteen verses of this chapter. “Take heed,” He says in general, “that ye do not your righteousness before men, […]

In the Beloved-Martin Lloyd Jones

  We must now look at the last three words in this sixth verse — “in the beloved”. They constitute one of these magnificent summaries of the gospel. As we have seen, the Apostle emphasizes that we must always think of the gospel in terms of the glory of God. It is all “to the […]

Humanism-The Fifth Woe-Martin Lloyd Jones

  This is the fifth woe pronounced by Isaiah on his contemporaries and it deals with something for which we have a new word today – humanism, the creed of our so-called intellectuals. The relevance of this verse in general, and in some particular respects, too, to our present condition, is something that should cause […]

He and He Alone-Martin Lloyd Jones

  We stand here face to face with one of the sublimest and greatest statements ever made, even by this mighty Apostle of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. There is a sense in which anyone who faces this verse must feel that he stands on very sacred ground. Indeed, I am ready to admit […]

God or Mammon-Martin Lloyd Jones

  IN our analysis of verses 19-24 we have seen that our Lord first of all lays down a proposition or a commandment, “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth … but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven.” In other words, He tells us that we are so to live in this world, […]

Faith On Trial: The Problem Stated-Martin Lloyd Jones

  THE GREAT VALUE of the Book of Psalms is that in it we have godly men stating their experience, and giving us an account of things that have happened to them in their spiritual life and warfare. Throughout history the Book of Psalms has, therefore, been a book of great value for God’s people. […]

Christian and Non-Christian-Martin Lloyd Jones

  HERE WE COME TO A dramatic and almost an abrupt statement. The Apostle has been describing the kind of life which is lived by the “other Gentiles”, the kind of life that these Ephesians Christians themselves used to live – the life still being lived by those of their compatriots and fellows who had […]

Breadth, Length, Depth, Height-Martin Lloyd Jones

  We now come to the actual petition which was offered by the Apostle for the Ephesians. It is that, having been rooted and grounded in love, they may be fully able to comprehend with all saints “what is the breadth, and the length, and the depth, and the height, and to know the love […]

A Living Hope Of The Hereafter-Martin Lloyd Jones

  AT THE VERY beginning of his letter the apostle Peter bursts forth into this mighty and magnificent doxology. After a very brief salutation he suddenly breaks forth in these thrilling and powerful words. In so doing the apostle was not doing anything unique. He was doing what all the early Christians did, what all […]

Judicial Hardening

“What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded (according as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. And David saith, Let […]

The Everlasting Covenant

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.”  – Ephesians 1:3  

God and Time

“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should […]

The Only Way

“Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” – Ephesians 6:10, 11  

Romans 10:3

"For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God."  

A Kingdom Which Cannot Be Shaken

Are you surprised that we have had two world wars already in this century? Are you surprised at the piling of these horrible armaments? Are you surprised at the confusion, the collapse, of so many institutions at this present time?
