What A Wonder

August 4, 2016 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

Dear Brothers and Sisters, On Sunday I mentioned that I’d like to take a bit more time in 2nd John than I had originally planned because I wanted to spend some time helping us as a congregation think through the doctrine of Christ. It is crucially important to the Apostle John in 2nd John. He goes so far as to say that if we do not co... Keep Reading

The Whole Obedeince of Jesus Christ

January 15, 2016 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

Dear Brothers and Sisters, A couple of weeks back I offered 16 resolutions for our church in 2016. For those of you who were at the members’ meeting, you may recall that I brought these up again in our meeting this past Lord’s Day. In particular, I mentioned resolution #1, that we should resolve to remember, rejoice, and rest in... Keep Reading

15 Reasons

April 8, 2015 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

Below is a list of 15 reasons why I am fully persuaded that Jesus got up from the dead. These are fairly common reasons for believing in the resurrection. I’m not really plowing any new ground here. I’ll simply state many them. In other words, I don’t fully explain the logic behind some of these reasons, but there is a logi... Keep Reading

Faith: A Gift of God

May 22, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

In our discipleship hour this past Sunday, we dove into a thrilling discussion on God’s gracious work in the salvation of sinners. I’ve been in the midst of doing some reading for school and I came across this helpful excerpt on the subject from J. Gresham Machen’s classic work, Christianity & Liberalism. “The be...

Then Sings My Soul

May 21, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

In addition to their daily Bible reading and prayer, I generally encourage Christians to make a practice of reading through various kinds of Christian writing. It is good to read through categories like: Theology, Church History, Christian Biography, Discipleship, and Culture (issues like Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, etc.). I try to pract...

How we need the Word and Spirit of God!

May 21, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

Some time ago, I remember a believer asking me to help them answer a question from a child. The child had asked, “How do we know God exists?” In preparation for an upcoming class, I’ve been reading the various arguments for God’s existence. There are almost an infinite number of arguments advanced to make the case for... Keep Reading

Theology and Coherent Living

May 13, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

Theology helps us to live coherent lives. Take, for example, the doctrine of God’s providence. As the Baptist Catechism of 1813 states, “God’s works of providence are his most holy, wise, and powerful preserving and governing all his creatures and all their actions.” This truth is confirmed by the testimony of Scrip...

Give Ear

May 13, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

Sometimes we fail to recognize the interdependent nature of much of theology. In other words, while one doctrine may be distinct from another that does not mean they are unrelated. That seems fairly obvious when we think of the doctrine of the Trinity and the Doctrine of the Second Person of the Trinity. There is clearly a connection between... Keep Reading

Jesus is God

May 13, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

On Sunday we had the privilege of studying Psalm 45. In the sermon I pointed out that the King was described as being divine. Verse 6 unmistakably makes that point, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. The scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness.” I took a little bit of time to explain that this makes complete se... Keep Reading

A Brief Reflection on the Incarnation

May 8, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

As we come out of a season in which we spent some time meditating on the incarnation of Jesus Christ, and as we move into a series in the gospel of John (which opens meditating on the incarnation of Jesus Christ), I thought that it might be valuable to think through the immense theology of the incarnation. J.I. Packer notes in his book Knowi... Keep Reading

Imputation

May 1, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

“As a matter of fact, the redeemed man gains more through redemption in Christ than he lost through the fall of Adam” [Loraine Boettner, The Reformed Faith, p.15]. That is good and glorious news packed into one sentence. While I love a good turn of phrase, sometimes it takes a paragraph to unpack an immensely glorious point. Such... Keep Reading

When we worked our way through John 15 and 16, many of you may have noticed that I broke those chapters up in a way that did not exactly match the paragraph structure of the Bibles that we provide at our church. I actually had a couple of paragraphs explaining why I had broken the passage up in the way that I did, but due to time (and my lov... Keep Reading

Let God be God

April 29, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

Over the past several months I’ve been reading up on a few theological trends and thoughts. Some of these issues have risen during my preparation of sermons in John’s Gospel, while others have come up in personal conversations and evangelistic endeavors. While these theological issues, thoughts, and trends have been varied and di... Keep Reading

Looking to Jesus

April 23, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

This post may bore some of you. Sorry if it does, but I don’t think it should! In some ways, this is an answer to a question that a member raised with me the other day, but I thought that it would be beneficial to share more broadly. Here’s the heart of the matter I want to address – why do we have a different ending to the... Keep Reading

Growth in Holiness

April 23, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

In my sermon, I mentioned that holiness is ultimately about God. Holiness isn’t about what we do or don’t do. It is about reflecting God’s good, gracious, and holy character. I could have (and maybe should have) also mentioned that holiness is not about something outside of us, but rather about what is happening inside of u... Keep Reading
