The Greatest Doctrine (Romans 8:28); Proverbs 1 and “It is Well With My Soul”

Martyn Lloyd-Jones says that Romans 8:32 contains the highest doctrine that there is.  After preaching on it last Sunday I am inclined to agree.  It is a profound and beautiful teaching – that is absolutely life changing once you get it and believe it.  Many of us were deeply moved and assured by it. You can here the whole service here or just the sermon … Continue reading The Greatest Doctrine (Romans 8:28); Proverbs 1 and “It is Well With My Soul”

Last Sunday morning we looked at Romans 8:9-13  The Realm of the Spirit.  It is a wonderful passage but I learned a lesson from a mistake I made.  Normally I operate on Luther’s advice to preach as ‘though a 14 year old serving girl’ were present.  My version of that is a 17 year old Dundee man who has never been in church before.  This … Continue reading The Realm of the Spirit (Romans 8:9-13); Sinclair on Wisdom (Proverbs 1:1-7), What a Friend we Have in Jesus.
