In today’s church, there are a number of significant questions about the doctrine of assurance. Some argue that you cannot ever really know if you’re saved at all; others insist that if you made some kind of profession of faith, then you ought never to doubt the reality of your salvation. The Westminster Confession of Faith [WCF] is the first major confession that devotes a chapter to assurance, and it makes several major points that can serve as correctives for our churches today.

I did not know D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones personally. I have spoken with a few people who did, and I have certainly listened to recordings of his preaching and read many of his books, but I do not count myself an expert on the man. I am a second-hand witness at best, and I write this as a distant beneficiary of his ministry, not as some kind of expert. But I can report with certainty that the ministry of Martyn Lloyd-Jones has had a profound influence on my life and ministry. Two words in particular characterize the influence: Preaching and Principles.

Christianity has always been a doctrinal religion. Theology - that which is taught about God, man, and salvation - has always been central to the Christian church. This is not to discount the place of experience. Certainly the Holy Spirit works in bringing men and women to new life and causing them to grow in their faith. But nonetheless, what we believe matters. Theology matters. And how we do theology matters as well.

People often ask me why I am committed to expositional preaching. Sometimes I answer by testifying to the great influence such preaching has had on my own life. I can point to lessons I've learned and growth I've experienced personally. Indeed, under God, my spiritual growth has been most pronounced in times of great struggle and suffering on the one hand, and times when I was sitting under sound exposition on the other. (Sometimes both at once!)
