October 31st is a very special day, not because of Halloween, but because of another important event that literally CHANGED the world!

On October 31st, almost five hundred years ago, in the year 1517, Martin Luther nailed a letter to a church door in Wittenberg, Germany.

His letter invited a debate on ninety-five different statements and initiated what is known today as the Protestant Reformation!

Martin Luther was a deeply religious man who was seeking salvation. To find answers, he became a monk and tried to earn his way into heaven by good works. But all his efforts never seemed enough! As he studied the Word of God he realized that “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23) and “For it is by grace we have been saved through faith, it is a gift of God and not from yourselves, not by works that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9.)

Martin Luther then began reading Romans in the Bible and came to verse 1:17 and discovered “The just shall live by faith.”

Luther realized that no amount of good works would achieve salvation for him. People are not saved by their works, but by their faith in Jesus Christ!

Have you been trying to earn your way into heaven?

Read Philippians 3:1-11.

Paul and Martin Luther both realized that anything they might do to earn eternal life was rubbish. Righteousness can only come through faith in Christ. Only though that faith can we enter into the presence of God!

October 31st was a new beginning for the church. It can also be a new beginning for you!
All you need to do is to believe in Christ.
