Sola Fide - Faith Alone

Thursday, October 27, 2016
Romans 5:1 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

This week as we remember and celebrate the 499th Birthday of the Reformation let us enjoy and bask in what the Reformers fought to unleash from the corrupt Church of Rome…  The Bible clearly declares that our salvation from sin and death is through FAITH ALONE in Jesus Christ and not by any of our works.  It is very humbling to read from God’s Word that He declares us righteous before we actually start to work on becoming righteous through any of our deeds. The Lord’s declaration that we are perfectly Holy before Him, our Holy God, is not in response to any spiritual or moral improvements within us, but is an imputation, a declaration by God that we have Christ’s righteousness and He has taken our sinfulness. When we trust Christ, that very moment we are clothed in his perfect holiness, so that even though we are sinful, we are judged by God as blameless.  This incredible God given truth in Scripture was taken captive for almost 1000 years by those who were supposed to be proclaiming it.  Thank you Lord for this amazing gift of Salvation through Faith Alone – Sola Fide -  and thank you Reformers for giving your lives so that this truth would be proclaimed once again.

Father, Thank You for Your son Jesus Christ who has become our sin and His perfect Holy righteousness has become our righteousness through faith alone by Your grace alone.  Thank You for loving us that much!  In Jesus name, Amen.
