Luther's "Christian Guide for Each Day"

Friday 24 May 2013 at 10:26 am.

23 May

You search in the Scriptures, for you think you have eternal life in them, and it is they that testify about Me, John 5:39.

That's it: since we ourselves maintain that the Holy Scripture is God's saving Word, which can eternally save us, we then also should read and study it in order that we find Christ testified to in it. Whoever then does not study in the Scriptures, as Christ here calls upon us to do, he can know nothing about eternal life; for he lives without God's Word, apart from which reason is unable to correctly think or speak anything about everlasting life. However anyone who studies the Scriptures in order to not find Christ in them, he also will be unable to receive eternal life, even though he at the same time learns, speaks, or also hopes much about the Scriptures. Jesus says one must search them, not be a judge or master over them, but rather be a pupil of them. We are not to bring our darkness into them, instead we are to get out of them the testimony about Christ. And as long as Christ is not correctly found in them, that's how long they also have not been correctly searched. 

Again I find myself singing with Luther: "Lord, keep us steadfast in Thy Word...."

In Christ - who is revealed to us in the Scriptures,

Elmer H.
