Tonight, Brittany and I attended the Reformation Sunday Service at Memorial Presbyterian Church here in St. Louis.
A guest minister preached on Isaiah 6:1-8. This passage is a very familiar passage for people in the Reformed circles about God's holiness. My initial reaction was to think, "Oh, I've heard this. I know this passage. I've lead a Bible Study on this. I don't need to hear anything else on this subject." But man, I am very wrong. God's holiness is not something that is mundane or old. The sermon didn't change my life, but it did remind me that I should not forget how different I am from God- and how he became like men to redeem all of us.
I am grateful for the Reformers reminding us of this truth. The truth that God's grace is the only thing that saves us.
Sola Scriptura. Sola Fide. Sola Gratia. Solus Christus. Soli Deo Gloria.
