Reigniting The Flame Of The Gospel - A Personal Video Presentation About The Protestant Reformation

Romans 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “But the righteous man shall live by faith.”


Recently I had the privilege of presenting a power point presentation on lessons we can learn from the 16th century Protestant Reformation. Today commemorates what is celebrated by many Christians as "Reformation Day". I thank the Lord for any benefit gleaned from the watching of this presentation. Our very own Associate Pastor of Music opened the session with the most well-known of Martin Luther's hymns: "A Mighty Fortress is our God" at time index 13:36 in the video. The other song we sang also set the tone in preparation for the presentation. The power point message itself begins at 24:57 in the video and runs to 1:09:07 (roughly 45 minutes). The main outline for the presentation is as follows:

The purpose of this video is not to exalt a man (Martin Luther) nor a particular event (16th century Protestant Reformation). Instead, the purpose is to point to Jesus Christ as we rely on the Lord to reignite the flame of the Gospel in our hearts. The take-away of the video is aimed at discovering the life applicable truths that result from the power of the Gospel. The link to the video is accessible by clicking on the following link:
