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.
