Reformation Day

On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses on the door of the church. He was upset at some of the things going on in the church and wanted to discuss and debate topics such as indulgences, good works, repentance, etc. I don't think Luther had any idea of what would be set off from posting the 95 Theses! But he got back to the basic truth of God's Word that people had strayed from--that we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. It's a truth many people sadly still do not believe. But I thank God everyday that it is all about His grace and nothing I do!
