2. sermon 

 

Sermon excerpt: 

The problem is that we have a tendency to make ourselves the center of our worlds: everything in our lives revolves around what we want and what is best for us. Idolatry, which is putting someone or something in God’s place, is one of our favorite sins; we put ourselves in the place where God should be. Instead of my life revolving around God, my life revolves around me.

But remember what the heart of the Reformation is all about: Jesus. Five hundred years ago (though probably longer ago than that), the church had gotten drunk on its own wealth and power and started to think the world revolved around the church; the church thought it had some role to play in deciding who received salvation and who didn’t. Luther wanted to call them back to Jesus and to remind them Christ alone is the source of salvation.
