Martyn Lloyd-Jones on everyday church

My dear friends, I say again that this is our unique opportunity at this time. That is what we stand for in a world that is so largely non-Christian. The way to convince the world of the truth of that gospel is to let them see that it makes a difference, that it is a power, that we are not mere theorists and philosophers but that we preach the power of God.

Wherever we are, whatever we are, only let our citizenship be worthy of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Amen.

What does it mean to be humble? How can I avoid the dangers of ego and hubris?
