Luther's "Christian Guide for Each Day"

Tuesday 28 May 2013 at 10:53 am.

28 May

Those who suffer according to God's will, they should entrust their souls to Him as a faithful Creator by doing good. 1 Peter 4:19.

This is the Christian skill which we all need to learn, that we look to the Word and turn our eyes far away from all adjacent oppressive need and suffering.  However the flesh is incapable of such a skill; it sees no farther than the present suffering. And it is one of the devil's skills that he rips the Word far away from the eye, so that a person sees nothing other than the need that is at hand. But that should not be; anyone who directs himself according to feelings, loses Christ. As much as you can, strike out of your heart and mind only the cross and suffering; otherwise, if one keeps on thinking about it for a long time, the trouble becomes even more wicked and evil. Are you in temptation and trouble? Then says this: Well then, I have not chosen this cross for myself, it is the fault of the beloved Word of God that I suffer such and that I have Christ and His teachings. So let it continue to go forth in God's Name; I will let Him Who long before has designated such suffering and has promised me His divine, gracious help, carry and fight this out for me.

The Lord be with you,

Elmer Hohle, pastor em.
