Celebrating Martin Luther

Today is Halloween, also known as Reformation Day. On this day in 1517 Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the church door in Wittenburg, Germany, forever cementing his reputation as a rebel/prophet/professor with a cause. Here’s a great post that captures the history of Reformation Day.

Today also happens to be my spiritual birthday. It’s great to wake up early on October 31st each year, kneel in thanks and praise to the one true God, and remember trading in my citizenship from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light. My life was radically changed on this day. And it keeps on changing. Have a great day!
