Reformation, and obedience to God...

We've been busy, busy, busy.  I've got back blog posts that I need to do to update, but wanted to do this post while I was thinking of it....

We're enjoying Autumn.  We love the changing colors, the foods, and the cooler weather that October brings.  Another thing we love about October is the yearly opportunity to study some Church History as we look at the Reformation.

"My conscience is captive to the Word of God.  I cannot recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe.  Here I stand.  I cannot do otherwise.  God help me.  Amen!"  
Martin Luther

This morning we were reading Martin Luther: A Man Who Changed The World.  Ah, what a sweet reminder and encouragement that was to us this morning.  Obedience to God and HIS word is what is important; not what others think.  To do otherwise is not right or safe. (to rephrase Martin Luther's famous words).

If you love me, you will keep my commandments.
John 14:15
