Fear of God Devotional: What Is at the Heart of the Reformation?



What is at the heart of the Reformation?

Paul Thompson explains that the heart of the Reformation involved rediscovering the necessity of the sufficiency of Scripture. We have been given the very words of God. They are wholly true and completely trustworthy.

A need for reformation indicates a need for a return to the only source of authority, God’s Word. There are various seasons where reformation is needed. If there is a need to reform the Church, we must look to Scripture to determine what God desires and commands instead of merely looking to see how the previous generation did certain things. We cannot base our actions and beliefs upon the ever-changing standards that man decides to be right. 

Acts 4:12 (NKJV) – “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
