In Praise Of Only Christ

In our discussion of the Reformation, we haven’t yet gone through the Five Solas of Reformed theology. Although we won’t  get into such a  conversation this evening, I want to mention the 4th Sola–Sola Christus (Christ Alone).

Rather than launching into an academic dissertation on Sola Christus right now, I prefer  to use it as a point of worship. Christ does command our adoration and praise since our hope of  salvation lies exclusively in Him and in His atoning work on the cross. Nothing you or I do  could possibly add to what He has already accomplished!

This contemporary hymn by the Gettys gives us a fitting way to conclude our celebration of the Reformation’s 498th anniversary. Its words remind us that the great Reformers looked, not to human effort, but exclusively to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Most importantly I belong to the Lord Jesus Christ. Secondarily, I'm married to my wonderful husband, John. We've both used wheelchairs since childhood (he from Polio and me from Cerebral Palsy). I type with a headstick because I can't control my hands. I enjoy reading, creating digital art, and exploring Boston with John.

    1. I will, but I want to also address other matters. We have two years leading up to the Reformation’s 500th anniversary…plenty of time to look at Zwingli, Calvin and others. But the 21st Century also requires attention. I expect to balance this blog so we understand our current culture as it relates to history.

      Good to hear from you!
