“The one and only Savior” by Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“It is the cross of Christ that brings us all down to the same place. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. The differences between nations, and groups within them, and individuals, are nothing, when you look at the cross of Christ. We are all miserable, helpless, hopeless sinners. There is nothing in which we can boast…

Once you really see this message of the cross, you see yourself grovelling on the dust and the floor, a miserable failure, a hopeless sinner. You can do nothing, neither can your neighbour, you are together in your complete helplessness and hopelessness. But thank God it does not leave you there. You both look up together into the face of the one and only Saviour, the Saviour of the world, the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world.”

–Martyn Lloyd-Jones, The Cross (Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 1986), 147-148.

  1. Ahhh, Martyn Lloyd-Jones. I like when MLJ says, “But thank God it does not leave you there.” Amen to that and to the one thing we CAN boast in: the cross of Christ.
