Can we receive salvation from God unless we know what it is to repent? Is it possible for a person to be a Christian without true repentance? ^For the answers to such thought-provoking questions, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones turns readers to Psalm 51, which is perhaps the classic statement on repentance in all of Scripture. It not only models the process involved in receiving salvation and forgiveness for sins--from the Holy Spirit's conviction and the sinner's confession to God's cleansing and renewal--but draws a profile of the truly repentant heart. ^"There are certain things that we must realize, we must grasp, we must believe before salvation can be ours], and the first of these is repentance.... Without repentance there is no knowledge of salvation, there is no experience of salvation. It is an essential step. It is the first step." ^This moving study gives readers a fuller understanding of the importance of repentance both for the unsaved and for Christians. Enlightening and pr
What if the Bible is true?What if there really is life after death . . . God does punish sin . . . Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven . . . Hell does exist? What will you say then?You can't blame God:He has already made it possible for you to be saved: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners" (1 Timothy 1:15).You can't say you aren't a sinner:The Bible says: "By one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned" (Romans 5:12).You can't say:"I am doing the best I can." "I've turned over a new leaf and joined the church." God says: "All our righteousnesses are as filthy rags" (Isaiah 64:6). "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us" (Titus 3:5).You can't say there is plenty of time to settle this matter:God says, "Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation" (2 Corinthians 6:2).You can't say you haven't been warned:This little silent messenger containing God's Word is a warning. Search the Bible and see if these things are so.You may say you do not believe all this, but that does not change facts. The choice of spending eternity in Heaven or Hell is yours alone. If you aren't concerned about your own soul and have no desire to be saved, pass this leaflet on to someone else. He or she may thank you for the warning. Where will you spend eternity?Jesus says, "He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life" (John 5:24). "But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name" (John 1:12).Make sure of your future today. Commit your life to Christ with the following prayer:Being convinced that I am a sinner, and believing that You died and rose to life again for me, I now receive You as my personal Savior. I turn now from my sins and commit my life to You.
Born in Cardiff, Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was a practicing physician until leaving medicine to become the minister of a Welsh Presbyterian Church.
Minister of Westminster Chapel and co-founder of both InterVarsity Fellowship and the Banner of Truth Trust, this brilliant Welshman was arguably the greatest evangelical preacher of the 20th century.
Best remembered for the power of his sermons in an age of spiritual decline and apathy, Dr Lloyd-Jones exercised his formidable intellect in the service of a thoroughly biblical faith, inspiring his contemporaries to think through the implications of their beliefs for both Church and world.
Dr Lloyd-Jones never tired of calling the Church to revival, to foundational doctrines and to a prayerful zeal for authentic apostolic experience. His rich legacy of recorded and published sermons continues to be used by God to transform lives today.
