Luther's "Christian Guide for Each Day"

Saturday 18 May 2013 at 11:01 am.

18 May


 How?  Do we then rescind the Law through faith?  Far from it! We uphold the Law. Romans 3:11.

See, that is the doctrine and power of the Gospel and the treasure, from which we are blessed, which brings us to the point that we begin to fulfill the Law. For where the unfathomable love and merit of Christ is recognized and believed, there also gushes forth love, both to God and to the neighbor. For through such discernment and trust the Holy Spirit moves the heart, so that one becomes well-disposed toward God and with praise and thanksgiving gladly does what he should do, guards himself against sin and disobedience, and willingly dedicates himself to serve and help everyone, and if he still feels weakness, he strives against this flesh and the devil by calling upon God etc., and thus continually by faith evermore clings to Christ wherever he himself doesn't do enough to fulfill the law, comforts himself with the fact that Christ has fulfilled it and gives him His fullness and strength, and thus at all times remains our Righteousness, our Redemption, our Sanctification, etc.

Despite my 'thorn in the flesh', the Lord's all-sufficient grace enabled me to do one more translation from Luther. I should have chopped up Luther's long last sentence - have a blessed Pentecost tomorrow.

In Christ,

Elmer H.
