Fear of God Devotional: Christ Alone By Grace Alone


What was the heart of the Reformation?

Don Hart explains that the heart of the Reformation encompassed all of the Solas. But faith in Christ and salvation by the grace of God alone was perhaps the “hinge” of the Reformation as Martin Luther once noted.

The Gospel explains how a sovereign, loving God redeemed a lost, rebelling people  by no merit of our own. Yet, God did that which is utter foolishness to a fallen world: the Creator died for the creature. Christ humbled Himself, He lived a perfect, sinless life. He obediently went to the cross. He took the full judgment that we deserved – the wrath of God. And it is only by faith in Christ, by the grace of God, that the Reformation even took place.

John 11:25 (NKJV) – “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.'”
