Martin Luther Quote

Luther-Predigt-LC-WB

“Every Christian, if he has accepted the gospel, may well rejoice that he is in the hands of this Christ and need not be troubled by his sins… for Christ, under whom he lives, will carry on from there.  It is true, the devil will go on tempting him with this or that vice… but there is no need to be troubled, for he has a strong, mighty King, He will defend him well.  It will be hard for you, it will be bitter; therefore prayer will be needed and others too will have to pray for you, that you may have strong courage and a brave heart to withstand the devil.  But one thing is certain; you will not be forsaken.  Christ will surely save you.”

-Martin Luther “Sermon on St. Matthias’ Day Feb. 5 1525”
