For the Glory of God Alone

On this Palm Sunday, our sermon examines the fifth of the Five Solas: For the Glory of God Alone (based on John 17:1-5). In Jesus' prayer, He asks that God's glory be revealed in His death and resurrection: "I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began."

Christ Alone

This sermon examines the fourth of the Five Solas: Christ Alone (based on Acts 4:8-12). Here, we rejoice that "salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved."

Scripture Alone

This sermon examines the third of the Five Solas: Scripture Alone (based on 2 Timothy 3:14-17). Knowing what Paul meant when he states that all Scripture is "God-breathed" gives us confidence that God's Word is "useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."

By Faith Alone

By the time the Reformation was in full swing, everyone knew the gospel could be reduced to the "Five Solas" (think of them as the Reformation's "five spiritual laws," but in Latin).  Now Latin has a way of making things sound truly impressive, but the word "sola" simply means "alone" or "only."  Herein lies the glory of the Reformation.  They proclaimed that the gospel came by grace alone, was embraced by faith alone, by Scripture alone, through Christ alone and for the glory of God alone. Five short statements.  And in these we hear the very essence of the gospel. This sermon examines the second of these "solas": By Faith Alone (based on Romans 1:17 and James 2:14-19).
