Reformation Day: What the Word can do

October 31, 2010 § 2 Comments

Today is Reformation Day and a reminder that God grants reformation and revival not primarily through new church programs or slick technologies, but through the simple act of opening the Bible:

“I simply taught, preached, and wrote God’s Word; otherwise I did nothing. And while I slept, or drank Wittenburg beer with my friends, Philip and with Armsdorf, the Word so greatly weakened the papacy, that no prince or emperor ever inflicted some damage upon it. I did nothing; the Word did everything.” (Martin Luther, The Eight Wittenburg Sermons, 1522)

For more information about Luther and his act that sparked the Protestant Reformation, Justin Taylor has posted some good resources.
