What are the 5 Solas, p. 5–Soli Deo Gloria.
As we remember the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, we are reviewing each of the key points and reaffirming our understanding of the factors that led to this movement. Next Wednesday (12.06.17) at 6:30pm we will look at Soli Deo Gloria—To God alone be glory.
God is the creator of all things. “The earth is the LORD’S, and all it contains, The world, and those who dwell in it” (Ps 24:1). Everything exists for His glory–creation, mountains, oceans, music, animal, and human. All things were created by and for Him.
“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! ‘For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?’ ‘Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?’ For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen” (Romans 11:33-36). And although man has a naïve ability to regard himself as more important than the Creator, does the thing formed say to the One who formed it, “Why have you made me this way?” (Romans 9:20). The pride of man will not stand before a Holy God. He alone deserves the glory and one day He alone will be worshipped. False gods and those who worship them will perish. Our desire is to be known by Him and to make Him known.
Join us this Wednesday as we explore what the bible has to say about the God who is worthy of glory alone.
