    What’s the Reformation all about? It’s still all about Jesus. It’s that simple. Not Martin Luther. Not Philip Melanchthon. Not the name “Lutheran,” to which we gladly cling as a distinctive and clarifying label. It’s all about Jesus — not merely as example but as Savior, the Father’s only provision for sin.

    Melanchthon crystallizes the pressing issue of the Reformation clearly in the Apology (XXVII), where suddenly, in the middle of his writing, he erupts with a petition to Jesus:

    O Christ, how long will you endure these insults which our enemies heap upon your gospel! In the [Augsburg] Confession we said that the forgiveness of sins is received freely on account of Christ through faith. If this is not the very voice of the gospel, if it is not the statement of the eternal Father, which you, who are “close to the Father’s heart” (John 1:18), have revealed to the world, then the charge against us is true. But your death is a witness, your resurrection is a witness, the Holy Spirit is a witness ...

    The Reformation is about the sweet Gospel in Christ — a free, clear gift, apart from any human effort.

    Plan now to join the celebration of the Reformation’s 500th anniversary.

    Please visit the newly launched LutheranReformation.org website. There, you’ll find free downloadable resources, a hymn competition and more. Additional resources are on the way.

    In the name of Jesus,

    Rev. Randall L. Golter
    Special Assistant to the President
