Today we will look at the final sola of the Reformation, the one that sums up the point of all the others. While the Reformers were well able to summarize their distinctive teaching into neat phrases, they were mindful to keep in focus the goal of it all, the glory of God. In our text today, Paul does something similar. After laying out theology in the first 11 chapters of Romans, he moves to doxology. Theology is the study of God, doxology is the worship of God. This is the truth the Reformers were most concerned to promote and what can be seen as the central theme of Scripture is soli Deo Gloria — to God alone be the glory. The goal of all is the glory of God. Why? The reason why God justifies mankind by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone is to manifest and make known to all the world the glory of God in the salvation of his people. This was his plan from eternity and true worship is filled with awe about God’s purposes and plans. Today we will look into the why and how we give glory to God.
