It's all about Jesus

October 31, 2017 marks the 500th Anniversary of the start of the Reformation when Martin Luther nailed 95 Theses on the door of a church in Wittenberg, Germany. In the 95 Theses, Luther said the church at that time had strayed from the teachings of the Bible. The church was teaching that people had to earn their way into heaven, but the Bible actually teaches that because of God’s grace and the special love Jesus has for people, anyone who has faith in what Jesus has done for them will receive God’s forgiveness and live with God forever. It is impossible to earn our way to be right with God. Only through Jesus’ love and what He has done for us can we be made right with God. Luther’s gift was to help people understand the Bible and that our relationship with God is all about Jesus.
