Preach the Word 10/20/2013

Reformation 2013

These words, attributed to Martin Luther at the Diet of Worms, have been an inspiration to God's people for centuries. Luther learned an important truth in his series of confrontations leading up to the ultimate showdown in Worms where he faced the most potent earthly powers on earth at the time. How could he stand against the applied pressures of the institutional church and the mightiest political ruler of the day? He kept establishing his footing on the solid rock of God's Word. As Jesus said in Matthew 7:24-27, only the house built upon the foundation of His words can stand in the day of storms. As the famous hymn so graphically states, all other ground is sinking sand.
