With the Reformation in the forefront of our minds this Sunday we consider the core of why, 500 years ago, Dr. Luther clung so dearly to the Scriptures. The true reason for his dedication was on account of the freedom that the true and full Gospel brings. Under the Law and by our own works we will never have security or peace of mind, but if we embrace what Paul says without adding our own words into it then we arrive at a place of security, peace, and joy that none else can give us except Christ himself. It is truly only by his righteous suffering, death, and resurrection that we are declared holy and able to do good.
Scripture: John 8:31-36
Venue: Faith Lutheran Church
