Daily MLJ— February 13, 2022

In Chapter 10 of volume 2, Martyn Lloyd-Jones is dealing with the question of the centuries of people outside Israel who never had the teaching of the Messiah. They couldn’t fulfill the sacrificial requirements of the law as pre-Christian Jews could. So is there a provision for them? MLJ’s answer is a model of restraint and urgent passion. He doesn’t go beyond what Scripture says. Instead, he reminds us of the mandate of Scripture. Here’s what he says about it:

“… No one can be saved outside the Lord Jesus Christ. And I know no more. But I will go further: I am not meant to know anymore. There would be something about it in the Bible if I were meant to know more, and there is not a word. All I know is that those in the world today who have never heard of the Lord Jesus Christ are under the wrath of God and under condemnation, and that it is my business and your business and the business of all Christians to do all we can to send the good news of salvation to them. “

Romans, vol. 2, Chapter 10, p 136

This year I’m trying to read through Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ 14 volume exposition of Romans. Lloyd-Jones began teaching through Romans on Friday nights at Westminster Chapel in London on October 7, 1955. Thirteen years later, at the end of chapter 14, he was forced to retire from the pulpit ministry because of illness. He spent the rest of his life editing the manuscripts of his sermons. All his sermons were recorded on tape, and are available at https://www.mljtrust.org/free-sermons/book-of-romans/

I pastor Glynwood Baptist Church in Prattville, Alabama. I read a lot, write a little, and drink lots of coffee. I have three callings in life: surrender to Christ, be a husband to Trish, and be the best father/grandfather I can be. Everything else is an assignment, because everything else can be done by someone else.
