Reformation Sunday Sermon — October 29 2017

In case you missed Reformation Sunday Service, here’s Pastor Mark’s sermon.

As We Gather

“It’s still all about Jesus.” It was all about Jesus when the Lord God first promised a Saviour to Adam, Eve, and their descendants. It was all about Jesus with every foretelling of the coming of Christ by Old Testament prophets. It was all about Jesus at the manger, the cross, and the empty tomb. It was all about Jesus as the apostle Paul penned, “We hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law” (Romans 3:28). It was all about Jesus when Martin Luther posted his Ninety-Five Theses on October 31, 1517. It’s still all about Jesus today as we receive the Means of Grace—Word and Sacrament. It will be all about Jesus when He returns in glory on the Last Day. As we observe the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we celebrate that it always has been, and always will be, all about Jesus!
