Reformation Day  “The Just Shall Live By Faith” (October 31, 1517)

Most Christians know the name Martin Luther.  He lead the Reformation in 1517 and the Christian world changed significantly from that flame being lit in Wittenberg, Germany.  Romans 1:16-17 states, “ For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written. The just shall live by faith.”

Some Reformation Day facts

 One of the most significant outcomes of the Reformation was the translation and dissemination of the Bible in numerous vernacular languages, which was previously only available in Latin. This change increased literacy rate and clarified church teachings for the common man.

In 2017, the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Reformation Day was recognized as a public holiday throughout Germany for that year only.

The Reformation redefined the nature of religious authority, asserting that the Bible, rather than the Pope, was the highest religious authority.

The Reformation resulted in a split in the Christian Church, establishing Protestantism as a separate branch alongside Roman Catholicism and Orthodox Christianity.

Famous Quote: “Peace if possible; truth at all costs.” “You should not believe your conscience and your feelings more than the Word which the Lord Who receives sinners preaches to you.” “We need to hear the Gospel every day because we forget it every day.” “Lord Jesus, You are my righteousness; I am Your sin.

A Prayer for Reformation Day

Father, You are the Author of every life, the whisperer of our unique purpose, and we pray for Your will in our lives. We celebrate Martin Luther, for the faithful life he led in bringing glory to Your name and pointing people to Jesus. Please work through us, as you did in Luther’s life.

Praying that our hearts may be inspired by the example of godly reformers, Pastor Larry
