I want to thank you. Here, where I live, it is not easy to get Reformed teaching but thanks to technology I have been able to listen to the Heidelcast; specifically to the series on the Marrow of Modern Divinity. It has been a struggle for me to understand my relation to the law as a believer and finally it hit me. What my Lord has done for me in his gospel is so great, so beyond measure that I could never repay Him. I have received such a gift and all I could want is to say “Thank You my Lord.”
In His law He tells me how to say thank you; How can I say thank You? By Loving Him and How do I show him my love? Obeying his commandments. Not as a means for gaining eternal life but as a result of having eternal life. Dr Clark, the good news of what He has done for me is a motivation for holiness stronger than any other I could think of. And that is why I am really thankful to God for your service through these means, I really don’t know what is like to be Reformed in North America but if it is as being Reformed in Colombia it can be pretty discouraging sometimes. I would like to encourage you my brother to keep up the good work, to contend for the faith and to keep on preaching His Law and His Gospel with clarity.
