Martyn Lloyd – Jones

Having preached on the subject of the wonder of the gospel from Luke 2:18,  Martyn Lloyd – Jones wrote in a letter to a friend, “My theme was the wonder and amazement that are inherent in the gospel message and our tragic failure to appreciate this. If we could but see the real wonder in the Incarnation, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection, what powers we should be! The Son of God dying for us – how can we remain so silent and so passive?  Do we spend enough time in prayer and silent meditation?  Are we not concentrating too much on what we can do in public and depending too much on our own abilities?”
