Reformation message — Stop trying to make something of yourself. Let God be God.

Those who sin will only ultimately experience God as a threat, as a judge. Only God can make peace with God & freedom in God a reality in your life and mine. Otherwise all God talk is deception & manipulation. As Jesus says “only the Son can make you free in reality”. Luther taught the Church to stop trying to earn peace with God, to stop trying to make something of ourselves, to stop avoiding God & God’s judgement, and instead, to simply let God be God. Let God be the God, God wants to be for you & me — the God who God is in Jesus Christ. This God alone is the Savior God. And is your Savior.
