The Reformation Affected All Areas of Life - Dr. Joel Beeke
Is the Reformation still relevant today? How does it continue to affect our lives?
Joel Beeke explains in this video that reformation has everything to do with the church today and profits us in all kinds of ways. Its importance and relevance did not come to an end 500 years ago. Rather, it affects the way we see everything.
The lessons we learn and take away from the Reformation impact our view on marriage, parenting, ethics, and all of life. Our ultimate goal of glorifying God is that we want to be filled with praise to God. The Reformation helped us to better understand who God is and be filled with a greater sense of worship towards Him.
1 Corinthians 6:11 (NKJV) – “And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”
