You must with total trust rely upon this and similar passages, even much more so, as your conscience martyrs you. For where you do not do this, but instead spoil yourself with your own contrition and satisfaction in order to satiate your conscience, you then will never ever come to rest and of course finally come to despair. For our sins, when we have them in our conscience and let them remain with us and look into our heart, they then are so many and are too strong and live forever. But when we see that they are laid upon Christ and that He has conquered them through His resurrection, and we cheerfully believe this, we the are not dead and and have not been destroyed; for our sins may not remain on Christ; through His resurrection they have bee conquered, and now see no wounds and pains on Him, i.e.: no sign of sins.
There you have it.
In Christ, Elmer Hohle
Be sober and watch; for your adversary, the devil, goes about like a roaring lion and looks for whomever he can devour. 1 Peter 5:8
True and earnest warning for pious, God-fearing hearts.
If I still should live a hundred years and had not only by God's grace put down the prior and present red and stormy winds, but could also still put down all future ones, then I could well see that thereby our descendants would have no rest restored to them, because the devil lives and rules. You, our descendants, also pray and promote with seriousness God's Word! Hold on to the poor storm lantern of God! Be armed and ready, as those who have to be ready every hour for when the devil will knock out your pane or window, rip off your door or roof, extinguish your light. That's why you should be sober and be alert! He never sleeps or parties; nor does he die before Judgment Day. You and I have to die, and when we are dead, he still hangs around - he who has always been around and can not let up on his raging. Christ, our dear Lord, Who has stomped on his head, come and finally save us from his raging. Amen.
Ouch! my shoulders are killing me - but take this Satan! By God's grace you didn't succeed in translating this difficult German devotion! May you, as fellow believer's in Christ, find this edifying.
