The Legacy Collection: The Very Best of Martyn Lloyd-Jones on MP3

February 15, 2010 1 comment


One of the greatest privileges I have is to serve as a trustee for the Martyn Lloyd-Jones Trust. Recently, the MLJ Trust has issued The Legacy Collection. Here’s more information:

Some of the most significant sermons in 20th Century Evangelical Christendom were preached by Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones during the nearly 30 year period when he was Minister of Westminster Chapel, London. Thankfully, in the Lords providence, the majority of those sermons were recorded on reel-to-reel tape and then carefully archived.

Now, with the benefit of modern technology, the Martyn Lloyd-Jones Recordings Trust has been able to digitally restore and improve the original recordings of some 1,600 sermons and make them available in CD and MP3 format. The twelve albums which comprise the Legacy Collection are those major series of sermons for which Dr Lloyd-Jones rightly became famous and the reason why so many people flocked to Westminster Chapel.

In contrast to the present day in which many preachers seem only able to offer the spiritual equivalent of a quick-fi x ready meal which inevitably leaves their listeners hungry and malnourished, the sermons of the Legacy Collection contain substantial food for the soul which is not only satisfying, but when applied to the heart, mind and will by the Holy Spirit, produces growth, vigour and authentic discipleship.

This unique collection should feature in the library of all Christians who are serious about gaining a better understanding of Gods Word and its application to all of lifes situations. This is indeed a precious inheritance that has been preserved for the blessing of Believers in the 21st Century.

Saturday 20th February, 3pm

James White will give two free talks on The Reliability of the New Testament. Christianity faces renewed attacks about the purity and preservation of the Scriptures, James White will help us better understand how the Church included books in the canon of Scripture and how the manuscripts have been faithfully preserved and not massively changed, as often claimed.

James will be preaching at Trinity Road Chapel, where other famous preachers have spoken–C. H. Spurgeon, C.T. Studd, Martyn Lloyd-Jones.

Monday, 22 February at 7:30pm The Big Trinity Debate.

Orthodox Christians believe in the Trinity, the teaching that there is one eternal being of God -indivisible, infinite. This one being of God is shared by three co-equal, co-eternal persons, the Father, the Son, and the Spirit.
Muslims reject this view, arguing that it results in worshiping someone other than Allah by associating partners with him.

James White and Abdullah al Andalusi will conduct a formal, moderated debate on the doctrine of the Trinity at 7:30pm at Trinity Road Chapel in Wandsworth Common, London. Click here for directions and a map.

Good and Encouraging Reminders

August 19, 2009 1 comment

Throughout the book of Acts, we learn about God’s determination to bring sinning, undeserving people into a forever-forgiven relationship with Himself through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. As we participate in the plan of God to save, keep in mind these several practical truths that Acts provides. As we do, these truths will encourage all of us in our witnessing for Christ.

1. God is patient with lost sinners. The leaders of Israel had rejected the ministry of John the Baptist (Matt. 21:23–27) and the ministry of Jesus, and yet God called out to them with another opportunity to repent and be saved. They had denied and slain their own Messiah, and yet God patiently held back His judgment and sent His Spirit to deal with them. People today need patience as we witness to a lost world.

2. True witness involves the bad news of sin and guilt as well as the good news of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. There can be no true faith in Christ unless first there is repentance from sin. It is the ministry of the Holy Spirit to convict lost sinners (John 16:7–11), and He will do this if we faithfully witness and use God’s Word.

3. The way to reach the masses is by helping the individual sinner. Peter and John shared the good news with a crippled beggar and his transformed life led to the conversion of 2,000 men! Let us treat each person with grace and mercy, sharing the good news with them. Who knows who or how many they might reach!

4. A great defense of the truth of the Christian faith is a changed life. The healed beggar was “Exhibit A” in Peter’s defense of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

5. Whenever God blesses, Satan shows up to oppose the work and silence the witness. The same crowd that opposed the ministry of Jesus Christ also opposed the work of the Apostles, and they will oppose our ministry today. Expect it—but don’t let it stop you! The important thing is not that we are comfortable, but that the name of the Lord is glorified through the preaching of the Gospel.

6. God has promised to bless and use His Word. And so let’s be faithful to witness. Jesus even prayed that our witness would have success (John 17:20), so we have every reason to be encouraged.

There is power in the name of Jesus, so we need not fear to witness and call sinners to repent. We can preach the “remission of sins” in His name (Luke 24:47) so that people might believe and have “life through His name” (John 20:31). We can give someone a cup of cold water in His name (Mark 9:41), and we can receive a child in His name (Matt. 18:5). These ministries may not seem spectacular, but they are still important to the work of God.

Yes, the name of Jesus Christ still has authority and power. Let’s go forth in His name!
