Preaching the Law is the second hardest thing the pastor does, right after preaching the Gospel. There are so many pitfalls for the preacher. How do we approach it in a way that is faithful to the text, and is faithful to our ultimate goal of communion with Christ? That’s the question for this week. Join Scott and Todd as they talk about the the crux of the matter in preaching the Law.
