Happy Reformation Day!

Happy All Hallow's Eve!

It is the 492nd anniversary of the day an Augustinian monk nailed his pages of protest to the door of the church at Wittenburg. Or maybe he mailed them. Who knows. Either way, he threw a Malotov cocktail, and the fire still burns today.
“Faith therefore must be purely taught: namely, that thou art so entirely joined unto Christ, that He and thou art made as it were one person: so that thou mayest boldly say, I am now one with Christ, that is to say, Christ’s righteousness, victory, and life are mine. And again, Christ may say, I am that sinner, that is, his sins and his death are Mine, because he is united and joined unto Me, and I unto him.”

- Martin Luther, Commentary on Galatians

Thank you, Brother Martin. You help me see and cling to Christ.

Soli Deo Gloria
