The celebration of the Festival of the Reformation in our Lutheran churches is self-evidently linked up with the name of Martin Luther; for he was the instrument in the hand of God of restoring to His Church the Word of God in it-s full truth and purity. This year we are reminded that on the 10th of November it has been 450 years since Luther, that great man of God, was born. What makes Luther an outstanding man in the history of the Church and of the world at large is what God made of Luther and what God did through Luther. In this respect it is that we honor Luther's name; Luther, like other great spiritual leaders in the Church, is God's gift, Heb.13,7.
