Reflections on The Law

Reflections on The Law


We’re taking a short break in our sermon series through the Gospel of Luke, and over the next 3 weeks, we’ll have a mini-series through The Ten Commandments.

In preparation for it, here are some quotes reflecting on The Law.

The law sends us to Christ to be justified, and Christ sends us to the law to be regulated.
–    John Flavel

God forbids sin not to prevent us enjoying ourselves, but to prevent us destroying ourselves.
–    Anon.

A low view of law leads to legalism in religion; a high view makes a man a seeker after grace.
–    J. Gresham Machen

Only if we walk in the beauty of God’s law do we become sure of our adoption as children of the Father.
–    John Calvin

The law reflects the nature and character of God just as surely as does the Gospel.
― Douglas Macmillan

People make excuses for not keeping the law of God, which is proof how deeply they believe in the law.
― C.S. Lewis
