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

T4G Reflections, Part 2

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

Brothers & Sisters, Last week I wrote expressing my thanks for pouring into me as your pastor in allowing me to attend the T4G conference and a small pastor’s network meeting. In that note, I began to share with you some of my reflections on that time. I mentioned a few thoughts from talks delivered by Thabiti Anyabwile, Matt Chan... Keep Reading

If I Should Lose All

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

This past Monday morning I was extremely edified and encouraged by Charles Spurgeon’s morning devotion from his book Mornings and Evenings. I thought that it could be useful to your soul as well.  Here is what Spurgeon had to say in reflecting upon Romans 8:28, “And we know that for those who love God all things work togethe...

Pray for Faithfulness and Fruitfulness

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

I have long prayed for our congregation to be faithful in evangelism. I think that the Lord has given us much grace in this regard. Several members of our congregation are in active conversations with co-workers, family members, friends, and neighbors. I praise God for that. Earlier in the week, I realized that while I was regularly praying ... Keep Reading

Christ's Feet

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

This coming Lord’s Day, consider how the Lord is able to judge the wicked for their wickedness and rescue the godly from their trials, it strikes me that the Lord’s sovereign power in this regard ought to make us humble. What shall we who are worthy of judgment do before our all sovereign and just God? Nothing but implore him for... Keep Reading

Another Revenue Battle

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

The Washington DC area is constantly in a battle over revenue and what those funds will be spent on. Let’s let Thomas Goodwin change the subject to a more edifying discussion of revenues for a moment: “What shall be the revenues of glory purchased by His death? Think what a large possession the blood of Christ will procure. Th... Keep Reading

God is Mercy-Full

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

Just as I do every week, I endeavor to read each day a passage that we’ll be studying as a way to prepare my heart for hearing from God when we gather. The passage is a bit longer this week, so I’ve been digesting it in smaller parts. This morning I read a section of Lamentations which included the two verses that Lamentations is... Keep Reading

God's Kindness Leads us to Repentance

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

During our initial study of the book of Judges, we spent a little bit of time reflecting on the subject of repentance.  The people of Israel in the opening of Judges 2 appear to be broken, but as Sir Richard Baker once said, “Other things may be worse for breaking, yet a heart is never at the best until it is broken.”  ...

Honesty: The Answer to Hypocrisy

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

The great puritan minster Thomas Adams once wrote that “Hypocrites are like pictures on a canvas, they show fairest at the farthest.” We’re all tempted to hold others at an arm’s length so that our flaws cannot be so clearly seen. We’re tempted to hide behind vague language and allusions to struggles, all the wh... Keep Reading

From time to time in ministry and in my own life, I try to remind myself that though Satan, sin, and death have already been defeated by virtue of Christ’s life, death, resurrection, and ascension into heavenly glory, that there is still a cosmic battle going on.  If the Apostle John’s Revelation proclaims nothing else, it p...
