He Speaks, So Let’s Listen

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

Not too long ago, I was meeting with a brother in Christ and he told me about how the Lord comforted him through various passages of Scripture. Does that happen to you? Do you interact with God’s Word, as though it is his personal Word to you? You should. We all should come to God’s Word expecting to hear from him, because when w... Keep Reading

Remember, Request, and Rest

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

As is often the case, I’ve been reading the passage of Scripture I’m going to preach through during my quiet times throughout the week. As I’ve been reading John 15:18-16:4, I’ve been struck by how clear Christ has been with his disciples. He’s always clear, but here especially he does not hold anything back. He... Keep Reading

We Are His

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

This afternoon I was meeting with a group of pastors and we were talking about what pastors talk about…ministry. We prayerfully considered gathering our churches together one Sunday evening for a combined time of prayer. We thought that our congregations could benefit from praying through A.C.T.S. (Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving,... 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

The Power of God

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

As Christians, one of our great struggles is to live in the reality that what God has done far outstrips what we were and what we have done. When we live in light of what we were and what we have done, we underestimate the power of God. We remember our past, but we live in light of the present and coming reality. In Colossians 1:21-22, two s... Keep Reading

Food, Football, and Fake Plates

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

Food, football, and fake plates. That’s what a number Thanksgiving’s growing up looked like for me and my family. We would often travel to Ohio to visit extended family for the holiday, and rather than sitting around a table, we would sit around the TV. Then there were the Thanksgiving hockey tournaments. If we weren’t with... Keep Reading

Celebrating October 31st

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

It may surprise you that I celebrate October 31st.  Then again it probably doesn't.  In my pastoral prayer, I gave thanks to God for what happened on October 31st in 1517.  I gave thanks that Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses on the door of the Wittenberg Chapel, and that the Lord used this event to help spark a recovery of t...

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

Christ’s Cross-work

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

So this past Sunday when we were studying Christ’s cross-work from John 18:28-19:42, I wanted to include a few quotes that reflected on the power of Christ’s coronation and crucifixion. I wanted to keep the sermon to a reasonable length, so (sadly) I had to cut all of them. But because there some that I find to be so powerful and... Keep Reading

A Scriptural Summary of the Christian Life

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

This past week I began a study of the book of Colossians with a neighbor. We’re going through a guided study entitled “The Complete Christian” prepared by the folks at Matthias Media. They have a number of guided book studies and if you’re looking for something to help you remain focused during your quiet time and wor... Keep Reading
