The Heart of the King

Today is Reformation Sunday, the Sunday before October 31, the day credited with marking the beginning of the Reformation in 1517. On this occasion we celebrate the providential goodness of God for the history and heritage that is ours because of His great grace. This evening I want to focus our attention on one of the great and central pillars of what it means to be Reformational and Reformed people. The sovereignty of God. What metaphor would you use to describe the sovereignty of God? It is the bedrock of Reformed Theology. It is the foundation and the pillar of Reformed Theology. It is the shining crown jewel, the heart, the head waters, the continental divide. It is affirmed from Genesis to Revelation in countless texts. Let’s consider one together, one that happens to be a personal favorite for some very practical reasons.
