Our church reformers spoke often of "Sola Scriptura" - solely Scripture. They rejected all subtractions and additions to God's Word. They did this from a deep love for God and His law.

Psalter 42 (based upon Psalm 19) states, "0 how love I Thy law! It is my meditation all the day." Is this confession of David, by grace, also your confession?

True love for God will produce a sincere carefulness in our thoughts, words, and actions. Is your deepest desire to love and obey God in all things -also in love toward others? Is a beginning of this loving obedience present in your life?


By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep His commandments.

For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous.

- I John 5:2-3
