ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Living Grace: Audio Sermons by the Late Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

I have recently been reading again a book, The Cross, based on a series of sermons by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, now deceased. Reading this book gives one a solid grasp of both doctrine and the heart and soul of a truly Evangelical preacher. Dr. Lloyd-Jones has been called the greatest British preacher of the twentieth century. Reading his sermon series on the cross of Christ gives me cause to rejoice and to highly recommend this book. Simply reading the sermon brings to one's imagination the power of his rhetoric and the simplicity of the Gospel to all who will hear it.

Because of the inspiration I received through reading this series of sermons I was moved to search for audio sermons of the late Evangelical preacher. I found Living Grace at the One Place website. You will not want to miss hearing the powerful preaching of Dr. Lloyd-Jones. Simply click on Living Grace and enjoy.

Often in the midst of a theological debate and battle we forget to give time to devotions and to prayer. We as Christians need to nurture the spirit and soul by Scripture reading, prayer, worship, and Christian meditation on and from God's Word. The contrast between Dr. Lloyd-Jones, who refused to compromise, and those who chose to remain within the Anglican church is a marked and distinct one.

Lord have mercy.

Christ have mercy.

Lord have mercy.

Collect of the Day

The Fourteenth Sunday after Trinity.

The Collect.

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, give unto us the increase of faith, hope, and charity; and, that we may obtain that which thou dost promise, make us to love that which thou dost command; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
