Sunday Citation

“The reason we preach about these great Reformation doctrines [sola Scriptura, sola gratia, sola fide, solus Christus, soli Deo gloria] – and also sing about them – is not because we want to live in the past or because we have an antiquarian interest in church history. No, we celebrate these doctrines because they are biblical truths of eternal significance and perpetual importance. Indeed, these doctrines, which find their meaning in the cross of Christ, are a matter of spiritual life and death. What we need to know is exactly the same thing that Paul resolved to know and what the Reformers wanted to know, and that is Jesus Christ and him crucified.”

-Philip G. Ryken, in “Christ Alone,” July/August Modern Reformation, p. 8
