Michael Lawrence does Biblical Theology

Michael Lawrence is preaching a series on Biblical Theology at Capitol Hill Baptist Church.
Mark Dever's series are also worth a listen:
"Say the word "theology" at a dinner party, and you might get some interesting looks. Talk about the specifics of Biblical theology in particular, and you may just take a dinner roll to the head. Theology is not so popular today, even in some churches. But could it be that Biblical theology is more important for the life and health of the local church than we've previously realized?"

Equipping the Church

Preaching Now:
"If the goal of ministry is to "equip the church for works of service," then how should we preachers feel about a comment like "I would have never been able to understand that psalm without you?" Sure our egos purr like a kitten with that sweet stroke, but what about the dear saint who has just confessed an inability to discover the riches of Scripture on her own? Shouldn't our preaching lead our listeners to become better and better interpreters? Won't good preaching make others less dependent on the preachers?"

gratitude & hoopla: Grace-blogging

gratitude & hoopla: Grace-blogging

"In the little epistle to Jude near the very end of our Bible, the unknown author warns about "ungodly people, who pervert the grace of God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ." Notice how closely associated are the perversion of grace and the denial of Christ's lordship. Christ and grace are inextricably bound. To preach grace is to preach Christ, and especially His cross. A preacher may have many other things to say and do, but if in the midst of it all he loses this focus, he is no longer preaching the Gospel."
