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

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?

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

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

Don Whitney has some of the best biblical and practical resources for growing in Christ. Among my favorites are his books: Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life and 10 Questions to Diagnose Your Spiritual Health. Perhaps the most seasonally practical of his articles are 10 questions he has written to ask yourself annually, either at ... Keep Reading

Treasuring Your Bible

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

Sunday, I participated in a prayer service with other pastors from the SBCV. Our goal was to gather together to praise God, confess sin, give thanks, and make our requests known to God in and through prayer. It was a wonderful evening, but perhaps the thing that warms my heart the most from last Sunday evening was the response of a young gir... Keep Reading

Judging With Severity

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

Are you quick to judge others with severity? Just admit it. You know you are. I am. So let’s hear and heed this gentle word from Charles Spurgeon together: "Eyes that have wept over our own sin will always be most ready to weep over the sins of others. If you have judged yourselves with candor, you will not judge others with severity.... Keep Reading

Why We Have the Bible

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

I treasure our church’s Statement of Faith. I carry a copy of it around in my Bible. You can call me weird for doing that, but you probably should have called me weird a long time ago for a number of other things. Anyway, our church’s Statement of Faith is based in large part upon the 1853 New Hampshire Confession of Faith. It is... Keep Reading

Looking to Jesus

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
