What are we fighting for in this Reformation celebration? Better yet, as Christians, what are we fighting for? Are we fighting for doctrinal purity? Are we fighting for missionary zeal? Or, something in between?

If you want to read a great book that puts all of this Reformation history/theology in perspective in a super accessible way, check this out. I’ve been reading this book, and it’s terrific. If you have Kindle Unlimited, you can read it for free. Otherwise, it’s $10.

This Sunday, we’re going to focus on the first “sola” – Grace.

Throughout church history, and in different denominations today, there are different perspectives on this grace thing. I’ll do my best to explain some of it on Sunday, although it can start to feel a bit academic if we spend too much time in the nuances.

When it comes down to it – Grace is a gift. Grace is a gift. Grace is a gift.

Did you hear it? Grace is a gift. Screen Shot 2017-10-31 at 9.49.28 AM.png

Salvation is a gift.

Forgiveness is a gift.

Eternal life is a gift.

Underserved on our part. Fully given by God at Christ’s expense.

For us.
