Luther's "Christian Guide for Each Day"

Tuesday 14 May 2013 at 11:29 am.

14 May

Since now Christ has suffered for us in the flesh, you now also arm yourselves with the same mindset. 1. Peter 4:1.

With His suffering Christ has not only rescued us from devil, death and sin, but also has left us an example, which we should follow in our suffering. And even though our suffering and cross should also not be brought up as something whereby we are saved or in the least way would want to merit something from it, we should nevertheless imitate Christ's suffering, so that we become imitators of Him. So then if I want be a Christian, I must also carry the servant's banner; the beloved Christ gives us no other raiment to wear in His servant courtyard; it has to be suffered. However, if you don't want to suffer, you have to realize that you will not be a servant in Christ's courtyard. So you may do what you want about the two: suffer or deny Christ.

So there you have another 'sloppy' translation - sometimes even my two dictionaries don't help me with Luther - I hope I got this one right.  As we suffer with Christ, let's get ready to sing: "Come, Holy Spirit come..." next Sunday.

In Christ,

Elmer H.
