Sermon Notes – Scripture contains everything necessary for salvation and righteous living. Though it doesn’t give us the answers to all our questions, or a blueprint for our daily living, it gives us enough to know how God wants us to be in relationship with him and with others as well as how we are to think of ourselves. While the Reformers call the church back to Scripture, they didn’t reject sacred tradition entirely. Rather, they believed all human-created doctrines and statements need to be tested against the truth of Scripture. But we can’t do that if we don’t know Scripture. In our increasingly secular society, with many messages coming our way that contradict God’s will, not more than ever we need to immerse ourselves in God’s Word so we can become God’s aroma to the world around us.
