Reformation Topic: Soli Deo Gloria ("To God alone be the glory")
Text: 1 Corinthians 10:23-33
Big Idea of the Message: God is glorified—recognized as praiseworthy and magnificent—through us when He saves us based on His grace. God is also glorified through us every day when we live for Him.
The Reformers understood that God’s glory—the magnificent worth of His holiness and beauty—is the ultimate goal of all of God’s actions and creation; therefore, God’s glory should be the primary concern of His people as well. Because salvation is a gift of God based on his free grace through faith in Jesus, only God can receive the honor for our being saved. His glory is the end result.
