Martin Luther

The sin underneath all our sins is to trust the lie of the serpent that we cannot trust the love and grace of Christ and must take matters into our own hands –Martin Luther

Feelings come and feelings go, And feelings are deceiving; My warrant is the Word of God– Naught else is worth believing. Though all my heart should feel condemned For want of some sweet token, There is One greater than my heart Whose Word cannot be broken. I’ll trust in God’s unchanging Word Till soul and body sever, For, though all things shall pass away, HIS WORD SHALL STAND FOREVER! –Martin Luther

Lord Jesus, You are my righteousness, I am your sin. You took on you what was mine; yet set on me what was yours. You became what you were not, that I might become what I was not. –Martin Luther

The whole being of any Christian is faith and love. Faith brings the person to God, love brings the person to people. –Martin Luther

A Christian is never in a state of completion but always in a process of becoming. –Martin Luther

God created the world out of nothing, and so long as we are nothing, He can make something out of us. –Martin Luther

Every week I preach justification by faith to my people, because every week they forget it. –Martin Luther

I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess. –Martin Luther

If ever the church is to flourish again, one must begin by instructing the young. –Martin Luther

The first thing I ask is that people should not make use of my name, and should not call themselves Lutherans but Christians. What is Luther? The teaching is not mine. Nor was I crucified for anyone…How did I, poor stinking bag of maggots that I am, come to the point where people call the children of Christ by my evil name? –Martin Luther

No one can believe how powerful prayer is and what it can effect, except those who have learned it by experience. Whenever I have prayed earnestly, I have been heard and have obtained more than I prayed for. God sometimes delays, but He always comes. –Martin Luther

If you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write. –Martin Luther
