A Liturgy Based on Five Solas

A Liturgy Based on Five Solas

 

Sola Scriptura : Scripture alone  

Pastor: All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.   (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
All:      I will bow down toward your holy temple and will praise your name for your love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word.   (Psalm 138:2)

 

Solus Christus: Christ alone
Pastor: He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.   (Colossians 1:13-18)
All:  For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men—the testimony given in its proper time.   (1 Timothy 2:5-6)

Sola Gratia: Grace alone
Pastor:  In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.   (Ephesians 1:7-8)
All: But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many!   (Romans 5:15)
Pastor: For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.   (Ephesians 2:8-9)

 

 

Sola Fide: Faith alone
Pastor: Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.   (Romans 5:1-2)

 

 

Soli Deo Gloria: Glory To God alone
Pastor:  So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.   (1 Corinthians 10:31)
All: To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen.   (Revelation 1:6)

 

Pastor: For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.   (Romans 11:36)

 

Consider following up with the singing of “In Christ Alone” by Keith Getty & Stuart Townend, or “To God Alone be the Glory” by Aaron Shust.
