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

Brothers & Sisters, The past two weeks, I’ve shared some reflections on my time at the Together for the Gospel conference (T4G). This week I’ll finish up sharing those reflections as well as sharing some of my reflections on my time at a small pastor’s fellowship following the conference. So far I’ve mentioned th...

God’s Word and God’s People

April 24, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

In 1539 Martin Luther wrote, “God’s Word cannot be without God’s people, and conversely, God’s people cannot be without God’s Word.” It is a beautiful statement. It is a profound statement. And it is a convicting statement. It is beautiful because it is well put. It is profound because it affirms the bibli... Keep Reading

Stop Apologizing for the Church

April 24, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

Of late I’ve been reading Mark Dever’s book The Church: The Gospel Made Visible. While I personally want to quibble with the good Dr.’s title a little bit (ask me about that another time), since I’ve gotten past the title page, I’ve been agreeing with him over and over again. Too often today, Christians are apol... Keep Reading

A Prayer for Understanding

April 24, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

As I began last week’s sermon preparation, I prayed. For some reason, last week I scribbled down the major headings of the prayer that I brought before the Lord that day, and I discovered them again today. I thought that I would share the rough outlines of that prayer because I believe that it is one that we can all offer to God when w... Keep Reading

Repentance and Mercy

April 24, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

On Tuesdays, I am reading through Sinclair Ferguson’s The Christian Life: A Doctrinal Introduction with another brother in the church. This past week we talked about chapters 8 and 9, but I was particularly encouraged by chapter 8, “True Repentance.” One of the things that struck me, as it has before, is how wonderful God&r...

Here Bring Your Wounded Hearts

April 24, 2014 | by: Mike Law | 0 Comments

This past Sunday evening I preached on the first two words of the Lord’s Prayer, “Our Father.” From the truth that God is our Father, I drew out five implications for our prayer lives as Christians and churches. I want to share with you the first implication because I need to preach it to myself over and over again. The fir... Keep Reading
