Luther's "Christian Guide for Each Day"

Saturday 25 January 2014 at 06:00 am.

25 January

We rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through Whom we now have received reconciliation. Romans 5:11.

The devil frequently exerts himself to catch you in some minor sin, so that he can darken up all the good works that you ever have done in your entire life, so that you don't see anything other than this single, minor sin. That however comes about if you do not engage the devil in a disputation. That's why a Christian never quite completely overcomes such evil thoughts, as if he despises them. For the ostentatious Spirit, the devil, cannot suffer the contempt. But to this there belongs and should be included the Holy Spirit and a diligent exercise of prayer and that one also diligently read the Holy Scriptures; for there is no a human work that can overcome the thoughts and strike them out of one's mind.  

 

Good advice, Luther; I hope my feeble mind adequately captured his German written thoughts into English.  I comfort myself with what Paul wrote in the above verse. I'm leaving the key board and will sit in my lazy-boy chair to read some Bible.  All of you are in my prayers.

In Christ,

Elmer H.
