Reformation Day

Twenty-Second Sunday after Trinity

31 October 2021


The Son of God Has Set Us Free from Sin and Death by His Grace

“Wisdom is justified by her deeds” (St. Matthew 11.19), and the true Wisdom of God, Christ Jesus the incarnate Son, justifies us by His deeds. He prepares His way by the preaching of repentance, but He has suffered the violence of the Law and voluntarily handed Himself over to violent men, that we might eat and drink with Him in His Kingdom and “remain in the house forever” (St. John 8.35).  For He is “a friend of tax collectors and sinners” (St. Matthew 11.19), and He has rescued us by His grace from the slavery of sin and death. By the proclamation of His eternal Gospel “to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people” (Revelation 14.6), “the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law” (Romans 3.21), “that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus” (Romans 3.26). And by hearing the Gospel of Christ Jesus, “whom God put forward as a propitiation by His blood, to be received by faith” (Romans 3.25), “you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (St. John 8.31–32).
