Luther's "Christian Guide for Each Day"

Tuesday 18 March 2014 at 06:00 am.

18 March

What was impossible for the Law to do (since it was weakened by the flesh), God did and sent His own Son in the form of sinful flesh and condemned sin in the flesh through sin. Romans 8:3.

When I feel that sin is biting me in my conscience, I then lift up my eyes and look at the bronze serpent on the cross, my dear Lord Christ; there I find another 'Sin' against my sin - Who then accuses me and wants to devour me. This very same 'other sin' however is Christ, my Lord, Who was made sin for us, even though He knew of no sin, so that in Him we would become the righteousness which avails before God. That very same 'Sin' is so powerful that it condemns my sin and rips it away and devours the sin of the whole world. Thus also my sin is condemned through that 'Sin', i.e., through the crucified Christ, so that it can ever condemn me. Then I also find death in my flesh, which martyrs and kills me; I however have another 'Death' against this death, Who is the 'Death' of my death, He also once more crucifies and rips away my death.

Amidst a host of life's pains and trials, the completion of this translation has me rejoicing with a consoled soul - may the Spirit do the same for you.

In Christ who is 'Sin' to my sin and 'Death' to my death,

E. Hohle
