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

T4G Reflections, Part 3

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

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

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

Satan and the Sword of the Spirit

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

A friend was recently confessing to me some struggles, and he was surprised when I mentioned that the Devil might be involved. We easily forget that he prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8). This is one of the “weird” things that we as Christians believe – that is, it is weird in the eye... Keep Reading

You Know He Forgives Us, Right?

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

In his book Holiness by Grace, Dr. Bryan Chapell wrote, “The tears of confession and the joy of pardon are required to produce the gratitude that empowers the Christian life” (p.35). I’ve only just started reading Dr. Chapell’s book, but I expect it to be a good one by what I’ve read so far. Many years ago a de... Keep Reading

The Good News is This Good

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

I’ve been sitting in lectures on the Christian life over the last couple of days, and we’ve basically been circling around one theme that ought to have a profound impact on every area of our lives as Christians. That one theme can really be summed up or presented in a couple of Scripture passages: There is therefore now no conde... Keep Reading
