Happy Day!



STICKY POST FOR OCTOBER

Wyclif Giving The Poor Priests His Translation of the Bible by William Frederick Yeames

On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed 95 Theses to the cathedral door at Wittenberg, Germany, inviting discussion of the extremely problematic sale of “indulgences” by the Roman Catholic Church.

This October, let’s celebrate the Reformation, a centuries-long happening, whose seeds were sown with Wycliffe in England and Huss in Prague, grew to maturity with Luther, and flowered in Scotland’s Second Reformation.

Let’s rejoice in this work of God, in which men and women returned to our foundation in the Bible, and its clear testimony that salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone, the Rock, the Son of the Living God!


Matthew 16

13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”

14 So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.  19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

20 Then He commanded His disciples that they should tell no one that He was Jesus the Christ.

  2. Maria, yes, I’ll be thinking about Luther and the early Reformers throughout the month of October. When Luther affixed that document to the church door, he had no idea what the Holy Spirit was going to do. So amazing!

    Amen to that. And may we also be available vessels God can work through. Amen.
