With gratefulness to God we celebrate the 489th anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting of his famous 95 Theses, calling for reformation in the church. The young Augustinian monk put his life on the line and we now know that a great Reformation was begun — a reformation that would lead to a recovery of Gospel and truth.
We should remember that the Reformation was also, in one sense, a band of brothers — men brought into friendship and fellowship by a common commitment to Reformation truth — the Gospel of Christ.
Thus, they were Together for the Gospel — Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, Solus Christus, Sola Scriptura, Soli Deo Gloria. May we follow in their faithful example.
It is indeed a day to celebrate and an anniversary to remember. Happy Reformation Day 2006.
