My Dad

The Reformed Lawless blog will contain my bible studies as well as my dad's sermons. My dad was a pastor in the SBC for 50 years. He was a reformed expositor of God's word. He pastored bilingual churches so growing up we got a dose of my dad's preaching in English and Spanish. He was gifted in the languages and loved his Greek and Hebrew.

His favorite song was sung by Steve Green, God and God Alone:

God and God alone
Created all these things we call our own
From the might to the small
The glory in them all
Is God's and God's alone

God and God alone
Reveals the truth of all we call unknown
All the best and worst of man
Can't change the master plan
It's God's and God's alone

God and God alone
Is fit to take the universe's throne
Let everything that lives
Reserve its truest praise
For God and God alone

God and God alone
Will be the joy of our eternal home
He will be our one desire
Our hearts will never tire
Of God and God alone

Words and music by Phil McHugh

This blog is dedicated to him. I hope that you enjoy his sermons and I pray that you will be blessed and challenged by them as I am.

Pastor Jim Lawless November 13, 1928 - May 13, 2003
