Romans 1 The Gospel Of God
No New Testament Epistle is more foundational to the Christian faith than Romans, and no chapter in Romans more basic than its first chapter. To few chapters did Dr. Lloyd-Jones give more thought or more emphasis. He viewed it as the supreme demonstration of the necessity for the gospel, the announcement of divine truths worthy of the attention of the whole world.
Romans 2:1-3:20 Righteous Judgement of God
Diagnosis was a life-long interest of D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones. Nowhere is this more evident than in his treatment of Romans chapter two. Here he unfolds Paul's analysis of the spiritual sickness of the human heart, its deceitfulness and rebellion against God, and its sinister use of religion as a defence-mechanism against true conviction of sin.
Romans 3:20-4:25 Atonement & Justification
In this volume the preacher moves step by step through the massive reasoning of the Apostle Paul on atonement and justification, yet the detail of the exposition does not stand in the way of a clear view of the whole, and the reader is constantly shown how every section fits in the theme of God's complete plan of salvation.
Romans 5 Assurance
Dr. Lloyd-Jones saw Romans 5 as a central chapter in the entire letter. Here is Paul's exposition of the blessings of justification by faith; but here too, the cosmic roots of our salvation are traced back to Christ.
Romans 6 The New Man
In Romans chapter 6 the Apostle Paul takes up the issue of antinomianism - a dangerous perversion of the gospel's teaching that has often troubled the church. The antinomian says, 'Ah, this gospel is a wonderful message of salvation by the free grace of God. Therefore, it doesn't matter at all how you live as a believer; you are saved once and forever.' The Apostle shows us why some people have misused the doctrine of the grace of God in that way, and explains why Christians - 'the servants of righteousness' - must not live in sin or let sin reign within.
Romans 7:1-8:4 The Law
'This volume deals with what is undoubtedly one of the most controversial chapters in the Bible. It will be clear from the exposition that the theme of this volume is no mere fascinating theological or intellectual problem, but one which is of vital importance to Christian experience, and to the health, well-being, and vigour of the Church.' From the author's preface
Romans 8:17-39 Final Perserverance
Dr. Lloyd-Jones says, "Little needs to be said by way of introduction to this volume. The verses considered in it are generally agreed to be one of the sublimest portions of scripture. In it the Apostle brings his argument concerning assurance of salvation to a grand climax. The way in which he advances surely from argument to argument, piling one upon another, is astonishing, and constitutes the supreme example of inspired logic. In doing so he brings us face to face with the fundamental theme of the Bible - God's plan and purpose of redemption conceived before time and the foundation of the world, and spanning the whole of human history from the original creation to the final glory.
Romans 8:5-17 The Sons Of God
This volume deals with momentous questions such as the doctrine of Sanctification and the baptism with the Holy Spirit. It, therefore, deals with matters which are not crucial in the living of the Christian LIfe, but also highly controversial.
Romans 9 Gods Sovereign Purpose
God's Sovereign Purpose will focus each reader's attention on the God of Scripture, in whose presence our questions about Scripture are put in proper perspective. Here, with Augustine, we hear Dr. Lloyd-Jones summoning us, before the majestic sovereignty of God, to 'humility, humility, humility'.
Romans 10 Saving Faith
Why do religious people not believe the gospel? What is involved in truly believing it?What about those who have never even heard the gospel?Who should tell them about it? This volume of sermons on Romans 10 provides answers to all these pressing questions.
Romans 11 To Gods Glory
In these sermons we see that the truths experessed by the Apostle Paul are not only a fitting conclusion to Romans 9-11, and indeed to the preceding chapters as well, but are also an interpretative key to the past and the future. They explain the history of Israel in the Old Testament and that of the Jews and the church in the New, while also anticipating the future of the Jewish people in the Christian church.
Romans 12: Christian Conduct
Romans 12 shows us Christian men and women living out the new life given to them in Christ in relationship with their fellows in the church, exercising the gifts they have received, wrestling with problems and opposition, but finally triumphing over all difficulties through the faith, hope and love that underlie all truly Christian conduct.
Romans 13: Life in Two Kingdoms
In his Exposition of Romans 13 Lloyd-Jones deals with the tensions of life in two kingdoms as he addresses topics such as; the function of the state, fearing God and honoring the king, the already and the not yet, Christ's coming, motives to holy living, reading Scripture and glory begun below. These are just a very few of the topics covered in the 23 chapters of an Exposition of Romans 13: Life in Two Kingdoms.
Romans 14: Liberty and Conscience
All Christians have been made free by Christ (John 8:36), but not all have an equally strong grasp of what this means in practice. Some are weakened by scruples about things which are strictly neither right nor wrong, while others assert their liberty in a way which risks doing violence to the consciences of the weak. It was this situation which the Apostle Paul addressed in Romans 14. He insisted that, while Christian liberty was to be maintained, it was never to be asserted in such a way as to hurt the consciences of others, or to embolden them to do what they believed to be wrong. In this the last volume of the series, Dr Lloyd-Jones explains the implications of this issue for the church today. The fitting conclusion of his exposition of Romans is that true Christianity is not, in the end, concerned with such matters as what may be eaten or what days should be observed, but with a divine kingdom, characterized by inward righteousness, peace and joy.
