Rescued from Despair (Rescued: What God Did to Save Us)

The slightest smidgeon of sin will banish you from the presence of God forever. Martin Luther understood this and spent hours each day confessing his sins. But he ran into a quandary:

Sins, in order to be forgiven, had to be remembered.
If sins aren’t remembered, they can’t be confessed.
If sins aren’t confessed, they can’t be forgiven.
And what if there are things that God considers sinful but you aren’t aware that they are sins?

Luther eventually connected the dots, and in this message, Pastor Lutzer takes us through the passages in the book of Romans that led Martin Luther to saving faith in Jesus Christ—and the start of the Reformation.
