498 years ago

Posted on October 31, 2015 · Posted in Worldview

498 years ago today a man nailed some ideas about God’s grace on a church door. This one action altered the course of western civilization. There was no internet, no TV, no 24/7 news, no mobile phones. There was the printing press. Sometimes we think we can’t do much. But when people follow biblical convictions, without regard to consequence, amazing things happen. God isn’t interested in things that impress people. He is interested in people who are impressed with him.

However challenging you think things are today, things were much bleaker in 1517. Ask God for the courage to be impressed with truth of the sword of the Spirit. Find a door and nail some ideas to it!
