Preparing for the Lord's Day A uniform helps us to identify who a person is and the role that they play in society. When we see a man in fatigues, we know that he is in the Army.

While Martin Luther only expected a lively discussion, the Lord used this act to ignite the fires of revival, the Protestant Reformation.

It means that we have been so joined to Christ that we have a new identity, that we have been forgiven and that we have spiritual life that all flows from our Savior.

Puritan John Preston once commented that, "To be in Christ is the ground of all salvation." It is from our union with Christ that every aspect of salvation flows. Our election, calling, regeneration, conversion, justification, adoption, sanctification, and glorification all flow from being joined to Christ by God's grace. This week, we will begin a three week study of unio...
