Reformation Day (observed)

Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people (Revelation 14:6).

As we observe Reformation Day once again, it is important to remember that we are not celebrating a day or moment in time or even Martin Luther and the Lutheran Church. What we remember is a call back to the Gospel, an eternal Gospel, which has been proclaimed throughout time and space. As John says, this is an eternal Gospel intended to be proclaimed to everyone on the earth. Such is the work that the Church continues to do today, and it is the work that LWML seeks to support contributing to missions throughout the world. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is for all people, and our hope is that through ongoing support of missionaries, the eternal Gospel might be proclaimed to all who have never heard it, and to those who need to hear it again. It is in proclaiming this Gospel that reformation happens, not just of the Church, but of the hearts of people who are turned away from lives of darkness and death toward the life that Christ has won for them. Prayerfully consider support of Gifts of Love which seeks to help the LWML continue its mission for the next generation and beyond. This eternal Gospel is for all people, for it points people to our Lord and to His everlasting salvation.
