In the final message of our short series on the Reformation, Pastor Chris touches on Paul's doxology from Romans 11 to highlight that our salvation--and, in fact, everything--is ultimately for the glory of God alone. Unfortunately, technical difficulties prevented us from recording this sermon.
In our fourth Reformation sermon, we turn to Hebrews. There, the author makes it clear that Jesus is the priest who secures a sinner's redemption, the mediator who secures a sinner's inheritance, the sacrifice who saves sinners. So salvation is accomplished on the merits of Christ alone.
The third of the five solas is inextraicably intertwined with the former. In Romans 3:21-26 we see that the revelation of God's righteousness, the ransom for God's righteousness, and the plan of God's righteousness point us to God's unfathomable, majestic grace.
As we continue in a series on the solas of the Reformation, we turn to Romans 4. There the Apostle Paul insists that faith--and only faith--is the mechanism by which we are made right with God.
500 years ago, on October 31, 1517, Martin Luther lit the fuse of what would become known as the Reformation. Underlying that movement were five bedrock principles that we dare not forget. Often misunderstood is the doctrine of sola scriptura. From Psalm 19, Pastor Chris teaches that scripture is entirely sufficient for life and righteousness for every Christian.
