    For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”

    Romans 1:16–17
    • This verse was what “sparked” the need for the Reformation in Martin Luther’s mind, specifically the last part.
    • The PAX were encouraged that while effort and good deeds are important and helpful, ultimately those in Christ live by faith and faith alone.


    • Dreamliner came out less than 24 hrs post-surgery and did what he could, which wasn’t much. But he lapped everyone else who was still in bed.
    • This workout what “Reformation Day” themed, on the 502nd anniversary of the day Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the Wittenburg church door, igniting the Protestant Reformation.
      • So, not really a holiday if one is Catholic.
    • The 95 Theses cover a wide range of reforms that Luther found necessary, but the first one is particularly profound: “When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said, ‘Repent’ (Mt 4:17), he willed the entire life of believers to be one of repentance.”
    • The Five Solas of the Reformation are as follows:
      1. Sola Scriptura – “Scripture Alone”
      2. Sola Fide – “Faith alone”
      3. Sola Gratia – “Grace Alone”
      4. Solus Christus – “Christ Alone”
      5. Soli Deo Gloria – “The Glory of God Alone”
