Sola Scriptura: The Revealing and Reforming Word

Back to all sermons Solas

Date: August 6, 2017

Speaker: Jay O'Brien

Series: Solas

Scripture: Matthew 4:1–4:4

Your Imperial Majesty and Your Lordships demand a simple answer. Here it is, plain and unvarnished. Unless I am convinced of error by the testimony of Scripture or by manifest reasoning. I stand convinced by the Scriptures to which I have appealed, and my conscience is taken captive by God’s word, I cannot and will not recant anything, for to act against our conscience is neither safe for us, nor open to us. God help me. - March Luther, 1521 Diet of Worms


Scripture Reveals

  • Reveals the Character of God
  • Reveals the Nature of Our Humanity
  • Reveals the Story of God's Restoring Work

I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh. - John 6:48-51


Scripture Reforms

Blessed is the man .... whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. - Psalm 1:1a, 2
