Good evening! Happy Reformation Day! Let us celebrate by remembering the Five Solas of the Reformation before we get to yesterday’s sermon. They are:
- Sola Fide: Salvation by Faith Alone.
- Sola Scriptura: Authority in Scripture Alone
- Solus Christus: Salvation through Christ alone
- Sola Gratia: Salvation by grace alone
- Soli Deo Gloria: glory to God alone
Three deal with salvation and push back against the idea of salvation by good deeds or financial means or through obedience to human rules. Sola Scriptura pushes back against people in authority over the church—there are church leaders and teachers, but all are (or ought to be) bound by Scripture. The only person who holds authority over a Christian is the Person, Jesus Christ. The last, soli Deo gloria, reminds us where our worship goes.
And they’re all in Latin because Latin was the nerd language of the sixteenth century.

The Sweetest Songs Ephesians 5:1-21
What do we want our legacy to be?
- Ephesians 5:1
- Ephesians 5:18
- Ephesians 5:4
What do we want to fill with?
You see, we are going to fill 168 hours this week
We can imitate Christ by filling our lives with Godliness
We cannot imitate Christ by emptying our lives of ungodliness. We have to replace it.
Change the soundtrack in our heads
Change the deeds of our bodies
Look farther ahead than we have ever looked before.
Prior to the sermon, Angela is singing this song from Praiseworks:
Next week, we’ll have Sunday night church again!
