1517 - 2017 Reformation 500th Anniversary

  On October 31, 1517, professor and priest Martin Luther presented his superiors with 95 theses calling for change in the Catholic church.  The posting of the 95 theses on a door started the revolution five centuries ago, among which many Reformers helped shape the way Christians read the Bible.  Luther also left an enduring imprint on Christian use of the Bible, as he was able to translate the Bible into German. (1522- The German New Testament was published.) Luther's translation found eager readers.   In his German order of worship, Luther stated that the "preaching and teaching of God's Word is the most important part of the divine worship service."   Again, Luther stated, "we are all theologians--every Christian!  Theology means God's word, 'theologian' means one who speaks God's words.  Each and every Christian should be such a person."
  Philipp Melanchthon was also a German Lutheran reformer, and collaborator with Martin Luther as they were both colleagues at Wittenburg University.  In Melanchthon's lectures he argued that sin is more than an external act; it reaches also into human will and emotions.  His lectures and text books had great influences on future teachers, as Melanchthon was the prime mover in building the German school system.   (more reformation stories to come soon..)

Prayer

We give thanks unto You, O God, because we can approach Your throne, at any time, with freedom and confidence! Father, we thank you that we are Your workmanship and our identity is found in You. We are grateful that we were chosen before the foundation of the world, that you adopted us, that you love us, and that we belong to You. When we are tempted to worry about what others think or we are afraid of how others see us, God remind us that You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. We are no longer condemned; we are forgiven. We are delivered. We are healed. We are set free. We are overcomers by the Blood of the Lamb! We are Your sons and Your daughters. Hallelujah! We are victorious. In Jesus' name, Amen.   (By T.Morrison)
