Reflecting on the Five Solas


Soli Deo Gloria – To The Glory Of God Alone

In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory.  In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory. – Ephesians 1:3-14 (ESV)

Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness! – Psalm 115:1 (ESV)

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. – I Corinthians 10:31 (ESV)

Questions for Reflection
In whom are we saved?  So who gets the praise and glory?
How does God’s love and faithfulness to you encourage you to give him glory?
Are you seeking to live for his glory in all of life?  What would that look like?
In what ways are you tempted to live for your own glory?

One Response to Reflecting on the Five Solas

  1. That’s a good thing to reflect about. Knowledge certainly puffs up. When we do things in the name of our Lord, sometimes we can feel a sense of pride when God’s will is being done through us, which is a slippery slope indeed. We have to remind ourselves that in whatever we do, we do it for the glory of our Lord.
