It may be considered controversial by some, but I believe, applauded by most God fearing preachers. It gives numerous practical examples to support his views.
Preachers and Preaching Book Report Martyn Lloyd-Jones by L.R Minnaar
I owe more to the ministry of Martyn Lloyd-Jones than I can put into words. In what follows, I try to summarize some of the most life-changing lessons I have learned from his preaching. Lloyd-Jones practiced expository preaching in a day when few practiced it. Through his pulpit ministry many rediscovered the biblical beauty and necessity of expository preaching.
That is the origin of our message. At this point there is one golden rule, one absolute demand—honesty. You have got to be honest with your text. I mean by that, that you do not go to a text just to pick out an idea which interests you and then deal with that idea yourself.
That is to be dishonest with the text. Like Elijah on Mt. Carmel, Lloyd-Jones believed that sermon preparation could prepare the sacrifice in an orderly way, but only God could bring down the fire.
The sermon must catch fire to be true preaching. Without the Spirit, a preacher is only reading his notes or repeating words in reliance upon human oratory. The Doctor prized the power of the Spirit in preaching. The most romantic place on earth is the pulpit. I ascend the pulpit stairs Sunday after Sunday; I never know what is going to happen.
I confess that I come expecting nothing; but suddenly the power is given. At other times I think I have a great deal because of my preparation; but, alas, I find there is no power in it. Thank God it is like that. I do my utmost, but he controls the supply and the power, he infuses it.
The secret to his success is that he did not separate light and heat, head and heart, word and Spirit. Lloyd-Jones was a student of history and saw this same pattern in history many times. What was it that turned the world upside down? Was it just theological teaching? Was it mere enunciation of correct doctrine?
The answer is that in the Book of Acts we have an account of a great revival, of the Spirit outpoured. What happened could not have happened otherwise. How did all these churches come into being? Was it merely that the apostles taught correct doctrine? Of course not! Correct doctrine can leave the church dead; you can have dead orthodoxy, you can have a church that is perfectly orthodox but perfectly useless. It is the only explanation of the astonishing things that happened.
Lloyd-Jones never tired of stressing the necessity of the Spirit for the work of ministry. They seem to have all the necessary knowledge, but that knowledge is not sufficient, something further is needed, is indeed essential. The knowledge indeed is vital for you cannot be witnesses without it, but to be effective witnesses you need the power and the unction and the demonstration of the Spirit in addition. Now if this was necessary for these men, how much more is it necessary for all others who try to preach these things?
A monumental turning point took place in while Lloyd-Jones was a medical student at St. He began listening to the preaching of Dr. John Hutton, the minister at Westminster Chapel. For many years I thought I was a Christian when in fact I was not. It was only later that I came to see that I had never been a Christian and became one. What I needed was preaching that would convict me of sin. But I never heard this. The preaching we had was always based on the assumption that we were all Christians.
That experience marked the rest of his ministry. Lloyd-Jones never assumed that the people in the pews were all Christians. The Lord blessed this approach. People from every walk of life experienced the life-changing power of the gospel.
That was the text for his first sermon and he never moved away from it as his guiding principle. Others in his day thought that the decline in church attendance in many places meant that modern man needed more modern attractions like drama.
Lloyd-Jones took a radically different approach. He suspended the drama society. Musical evenings were canceled. He simply preached Christ in the power of the Spirit.
He believed that the first work of the Holy Spirit in the pulpit would be to convict people of their sin and to humble them in the presence of God. One should not try to soothe the conscience of those who do not fear God and are not seeking his mercy. He believed that the Spirit of God would not own that kind of preaching. In so doing, Iain Murray emphasized that Lloyd-Jones went back to a preaching principle that Charles Spurgeon had owned for his own ministry. It is idle to attempt to heal those who are not wounded, to attempt to clothe those who have never been stripped, and to make those rich who have never realized their poverty.
The church needs to relearn this lesson in every generation. There is nothing new under the sun. The Lord raised up Charles Spurgeon to confront the downward spiral of England into liberalism in the nineteenth century. It became known as the Downgrade controversy.
The Lord raised up Lloyd-Jones to deal with the downward liberal slide in the twentieth century. We need more of this kind of preaching in the twenty-first century. Jason Meyer highlights the life of Martyn Lloyd-Jones, regarded as one of the most powerful preachers of the twentieth century, teaching us the importance of the union between doctrine and life.
Lloyd-Jones received a living from preaching, but he did not live for preaching. Being a Christian was the most wonderful thing in the world to him. He testified powerfully to this truth at the end of his life. Lloyd-Jones became ill and it became very difficult for him to get from his chair to his bed. Friends would come to encourage him and would watch him and become discouraged themselves. They would say, Martyn, you used to be this powerful preacher, a lion in the pulpit, and now you look pitiful—you can hardly make it to your bed.
How do you keep from getting discouraged? He would often quote a Bible verse from Luke Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.
I am no less saved today than I was when I was preaching. In fact, salvation is nearer than when I first believed. We do not rejoice in ministry successes. Let us rejoice in the lavish mercy of Christ toward us that our names are written in heaven! Jason C.
