Luther's "Christian Guide for Each Day"

Tuesday 07 January 2014 at 06:00 am.

7 January

And look, a voice from heaven from heaven said: This is My Son, in Whom I have great delight. Matthew 3:17.

Thus the highest Preacher from the highest and greatest pulpit preaches down from heaven, and the sermon is the sermon above all sermons, to the level which none other can rise, as the almighty, eternal, merciful God speaks about His equally almighty, beloved Son: This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am delighted. The greatest Scholar and Listener of this sermon is the Holy Spirit, Third Person of the divine Majesty. They are the greatest of all preachers, sermons, and listeners, and there can be none greater. Therefore the beloved angels are quiet and do not allow themselves to be heard, instead they themselves listen to the highest, greatest Preacher, God the almighty Father; they listen to what He preaches about his beloved Son, in Whom He has great delight/with Whom He is well-pleased. But here you may say: Of what benefit is that to me? Christ is God's Son and without sin. I however am a poor, miserable sinner, conceived and born in sin; therefore on account of my sin things did not go so well at my Baptism. No, you should never do that, instead with your Baptism you should come into Christ's Baptism, thus then Christ's Baptism is your Baptism and your Baptism is Christ's Baptism and beyond that it's one Baptism.

This one God enabled my weakening mind to translate without even once consulting my German dictionary.  It also reminded me to renew my Baptismal covenant, as with contrite repentance we drown the Old Adam and have the new man in Christ come forth (Romans 6).  As my son was taking us to noonday Thanksgiving service today, my shoe sole caught on the edge of a carpet coming into the service --- a holy angel kept me from serious injury.  And in church Pastor Pohland preached on the 3 verses I read while riding to church - Ps. 107:1-3!  His theme was: "The Song of the Redeemed".

God has given us every good gift - for which we can never thank Him enough... especially for His Spirit wrought faith in our Savior.

Thank the Lord because He is good and merciful forever!
