The Festival of the Reformation
Sermon Text: Ephesians 2:8-9
Peace be unto you from the Lord of the Church, its Sovereign Head, Christ Jesus. Amen.
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
So, what should we talk about? Odd question, I know, on this very special day. The word “reformation” certainly gives it away, but it may not say it all. To this, it would be fitting to add the words “restoration” and “preservation.”
What was reformed was the Christian church here on earth as it was cleansed of so many impurities and pollutants that had been added over time, sad to say, by the very men who were entrusted to keep it pure and undefiled.
