Reflections & Preparation for Worship
O God, by Your power may we, together with all the saints, comprehend the breadth and length and height and depth of the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that we may be filled with Your fullness. Amen.
~ based on Ephesians 3:18-19
“Not until the law has bruised and smitten us will we admit our need of the gospel to bind up our wounds. Not until the law has arrested and imprisoned us will we pine for Christ to set us free. Not untilthe law has condemned and killed us will we call upon Christ for justification and life. Not until the lawhas driven us to despair of ourselves will we ever believe in Jesus. Not until the law has humbled us evento hell will we turn to the gospel to raise us to heaven.”~ John Stott“The true use of the law is this, that I know that by the law I am being brought to an acknowledgment of sin and am being humbled, so that I may come to Christ and be justified by faith.”~ Martin Luther “To see the Law by Christ fulfilledTo hear His pardoning voiceChanges a slave into a childAnd duty into choice.”~ William Cowper
