The Grace of the Law

"By reclaiming Luther's grand discovery of justification by faith, Christians again embrace the law with David, Paul, and James. The law leads to Christ, plainly outlines the extent of Christ's payment, defines his righteousness, protects believers from sinning against God's love, and enables them to give concrete expression to their love for God by deeds of obedience."

Donald Van Dyken, Rediscovering Catechism, 6.

Toby: we are having our men read Van Dyken's book right now as we try to lead our families through the Heidelberg Catechism. Blessings, brother.
