Luther's "Christian Guide for Each Day"

Wednesday 08 January 2014 at 06:00 am.

8 January

And the tempter came to Him and said: If You are God's Son, then tell these stones to become bread. Matthew 4:3.

Now You tell me You have a God who takes care of You! Where now is Your heavenly Father Who takes care of You? I mean of course that He has nicely left You and forsaken You. So now eat and drink of Your faith! Let's see how satisfied You will be! How fine You are God's Son, how paternally He launched Himself against You, in that He doesn't even send You a crust of bread, leaves You so poor and needy. Do You any longer believe that You are His Son and He is Your Father? With thoughts like these the devil verily stings all of God's children, and Christ mostly certainly felt it; because He was not a stick or stone, although He was and remains pure and without sin, like we are unable to stay.

Amidst all temptations, let's always turn to Christ our Savior for forgiveness and rescue from the clutches of the devil.  We sing v. 3 of Luther's hymn based on Psalm 46:

Tho' devils all the world should fill, All eager to devour us,

We tremble not, we fear no ill, They shall not over pow'r us.

This world's prince may still Scowl fierce as he will,

He can harm us none, He's judged; the deed is done;

One little Word can fell him.   (T L H #262)
