Galatians

 

A slogan of the Reformation was semper reformanda—always reforming. The Church and therefore individual Christians must always be reforming. To do so, like the chief reformer, our consciences must be captive to the Word of God. Daily Bible reading and meditation in the scriptures is a primary way to keep your conscience in the Word. Daily Reform is written with this idea in mind.

Each day’s readings begins with a portion of Martin Luther’s Commentary on the Epistle to the Galatians. (Daily Reformation uses the writings of a variety of Reformers.) I provide supporting scriptures and pull the two together with my own thoughts.
