We continue our third annual Reformation Lecture Series by considering the sufficiency of the person and work of the Lord, Jesus Christ. We examine Christ as our Mediator, our Intercessor and our Priest as He is so clearly presented in Scripture and we see how the teaching of the church at the time of the Reformation undermined His sufficiency in each of these roles.
We also look at the privilege we have as children of God in being able to draw near to Him - a privilege which is largely removed by systems of doctrine which erect layers of priests, Saints and other intermediaries between us and Christ.
The desire of the human heart to seek after things that can be seen and touched will always lead to doctrines where the work of Christ is added to in various ways. We must reject anything of this sort, cleaving to the cry of the Reformation, ‘Christ Alone!’
