Remembering the Reformation’s 500 Year Anniversary

As we approach the 500 Year Anniversary of the Reformation, here are a few things I am grateful for from that mighty shaking:

-The Bible in my own vernacular: read more here

-The 5 Solas: read more here

-The Restoration of the Preaching Pulpit: read more here

-The Return of Congregational Singing: read more here

-The Gift of Marriage restored to the Ministry: read more here 

These are some of the glorious fruits that I am deeply grateful for as I remember the Reformation. I will be teaching about these matters and more in my upcoming series starting in November called “The Household of Faith: Understanding the Church, the family of faith, God’s pillar and foundation of the Truth.

“I have written so that you will know how people ought to act in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

Charles Haddon Spurgeon
“We want again Luthers, Calvins. Men fit to mark eras. Whose names breathe terror in the foeman’s ears. We have dire need of such men in the church today, whence will they come to us? They are the gifts of Jesus Christ to the church, and will come in due time. He has power to give us a golden age of preachers. And when the good old truth is once more preached by men whose lips are touched as with a live coal from off the altar, this shall be the instrument in the hand of the Spirit for bringing about a great and thorough revival of religion in the land. “I do not look for any other means of converting men, beyond the simple preaching of the gospel, and the opening of men’s ears to hear it. The moment the church of God shall despise the pulpit, God will despise the church. It has been through the ministry of preaching that the Lord has been pleased to revive and bless His churches.”
