One of my daily habits (excluding Sundays) is to read 10 pages from a great book (click here to learn more about this). Recently I finished a great book called Spirtual Depression. Its a collection of sermons by Martin Lloyd Jones on the role that emotions play in the Christian life. I found MLJ’s preaching interesting and refreshing.
So when I heard recently that all of MLJ’s sermons are now freely available as audio downloads, I was pretty excited. You do have a get an account, and they limit the number of downloads you can make a week, but this is still a grand deal! If you don’t know where to start, I would recommend the series “Spiritual Depression.”
John Piper also provides a thought about listening to MLJ, which I thought worth repeating. This comes from a panel discussion from Together for the Gospel 2006:
“Now you can’t listen too much of MLJ because you will preach poorly if you do. He was absolutely unique. He could sustain a level of seriousness that probably the average one of us can’t without sounding stilted, so do a little bit of MLJ.”
Have you ever listened to MLJ’s sermons? Who else do you like to listen to? Let us know in the comments.
