Luther's "Christian Guide for Each Day"

Friday 18 April 2014 at 06:00 am.

Good Friday

Indeed/Verily, He has taken on Himself our suffering ... He was wounded for our transgression and was crushed for our sins; The punishment was laid on Him, so that we could have peace, and by His wounds we were healed. - Isaiah 53:4-5.

Beyond all measure this beautiful and comforting proclamation is about Christ, our Savior; we with our words, yes also with our thoughts, can never ever acquire the comprehension of this. In yonder life we will forever and ever have our joy and delight upon the fact that the Son of God so deeply humbled Himself and took my sin upon His back; indeed, not only my sin, but also the sin of the whole world that has ever been committed - all the way from Adam on down to the very last person on earth; He was willing to have committed them and also consequently suffer and die because them, so that I may be without sin and receive eternal salvation. There of course is no one who is capable of adequately talking or thinking about this, namely, that the entire world with all its holiness, righteousness, might and glory is locked up under sin and merits nothing before God, and that if anyone wants to be saved and freed of one's sin, he has to know that all of his sin has been laid upon the Lamb's back. That's why John points his disciples to this Lamb and says: "Look, that is the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world." Do you want to know where the sin of the world has been laid, so it would be forgiven? Look not upon the Law of Moses nor run to the devil; for there you will find sin, before which you will be terrified and be condemned. However, if you want to know and find a place where sin and the world have been taken away,then look: the Lord has laid upon the cross and upon the back of this Lamb and upon none other.       

 

Luther, you drive me up the wall with your long sentences of interconnected thoughts... but I really don't want to chop them up. 

Thank you Jesus for becoming the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world.

In the Name of Jesus,

Elmer H.
