    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

Reformation Day Emphasizes Implementing The Word Of God In Our Lives

5_solasOn October 31, 1517, Martin Luther did not realize how his 95 theses nailed to the church door in Wittenburg would be used by God to change the world. His desire was to see the Catholic Church reform in terms of God’s Word. It didn’t and so, the Reformation was born.

We continue to desire our lives and God’s church to be reformed by God’s Word. No area of life can be left untouched. History records that Luther, Calvin and other reformers were not readily greeted with open arms in appreciation for their work. In fact, they faced much opposition. Many were martyred for holding to reformation principles.

The tenets of the Reformation – such as the sufficiency of scripture for all of life, salvation by grace through faith in Christ alone – are found in the Old Testament as well as the New. One sola of the Reformation, “sola scripture”, includes the emphasis on the entire Bible being implemented in our living out our lives.
