Reformation Day Sermon, 2010

On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther placed his 95 Theses on the castle church door in Wittenberg. Luther had no idea that these theses would bring about such a great commotion in the church of his day. He simply responded to the discrepancies he saw between the church and Scripture itself. He responded out of a great struggle which he himself fought tooth and nail to remedy, but found that he himself could not. Luther’s struggle for a clear conscience before God could not be remedied by what the church taught. In the Augustinian monastery in which he served as a monk, he saw his sin ever before him. He was guilty before a just and holy God. He was not able to take comfort in fasting, confession, bodily discipline, or anything he did. The phrase in which he struggled with was from For in it (that in the Gospel) a righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith( just as it is written( ‘the just/righteous one will live by faith’ (Romans 1:17;Hab 2:4).
