Luther's "Christian Guide for Each Day"

Wednesday 22 January 2014 at 06:00 am.

22 January

Jesus saw a man sitting at the customs office, whose name was Matthew, and said to him: Follow Me! And he stood up and followed Him. Matthew 9:9.

This is a precious consolation, that He chose such an unworthy sinner to be an Apostle, so that due to the high office one should not become proud or that not a single sinner should ever place a mistrust in Christ or despair of Him. For who of course are those who sit in the highest choir and with innermost Council of the saints? Indeed, they are the biggest outstanding sinners and tax-collectors, who according to their righteousness rightly should be sitting in the middle of hell. That's why Peter had no reason why he should despise me or could boast against me, even though I am a sinner, for he has cause to recall that he had been in the fellowship of sinners and committed the greatest sins with them.

This now has me singing:

"Chief of sinners though I be,   Jesus shed His blood for me.

 Died that I might live on High,   Lives that I might never die.

 As the branch is to the vine,   I am His and He is mine."

Now that I looked up the title in my old 1944 confirmation gift from my uncle Edwin (my mother's youngest sibling), it's v. 1 of #342 in T L H. 

In Christ,

Elmer H.
