5 Myths About the Reformation (Gavin Ortlund)
This time of year many Protestants celebrate the Reformation. For some, however, it feels odd to “celebrate” an event that divided the church. Didn’t Jesus pray for the church’s unity?

Lyrics: VERSE 1 Your Word alone is solid ground, The mighty rock on which we build. In every line the truth is found And every page with glory filled.
VERSE 2 Through faith alone we come to You; We have no merit we can claim. Sure that Your promises are true; We place our hope in Jesus’ name.
CHORUS Gloria, gloria, glory to God alone Gloria, gloria, glory to God alone
VERSE 3 In Christ alone we’re justified; His righteousness is all our plea. Your law’s demands are satisfied; His perfect work has set us free.
VERSE 4 By grace alone we have been saved, All that we are has come from You. Hearts that were once by sin enslaved Now by Your pow’r have been made new.
