It’s a great time to confess Jesus!
The 500th anniversary of the Reformation is not about Martin Luther, whom God used to reform His Church. Rather, it’s about Jesus Christ, who forgave Luther—and forgives you!—by grace through faith.
In Luther’s time, people spent countless hours giving honor to saints because they believed that doing so would lessen their time in purgatory on their way to heaven. But by studying God’s Word, Luther realized that it is not our works that save us. It is God’s grace. Because the Bible tells us, “by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast” (Ephesians 2:8–9 ESV).
Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, invites you to join in the celebration and the confession of salvation through Jesus Christ alone. Because even 500 years after the Reformation, it’s still all about Jesus.
