Our Spiritual Inheritance – Martin Luther

Geoff ChapmanGreat Quotes0 Comments

 Is Christ really our brother, then I would like to know what we can be in need of?

His heritage is life and death, sin and grace, all that is in heaven and earth, eternal truth, power, wisdom, righteousness; he governs and rules over all, over hunger and thirst, over fortune and misfortune, over everything imaginable, whether in heaven or on earth, not only spiritual but also secular affairs; and the sum total of all is, he has all things in his hand, be they eternal or temporal. Now if I believe on him, I become partaker with him of all his possessions, and obtain not only a part or a piece; but, like him, I obtain all, eternal righteousness, eternal wisdom, eternal strength, and become a lord and reign over all. The stomach will not hunger, sins will not oppress, I will no more fear death, nor be terror-stricken by Satan, and I will never be in want, but will be like Christ the Lord himself.

Martin Luther - A Second Sermon on Christ's Resurrection, Mark 16:1-8 - ON THE FRUIT AND POWER OF CHRIST'S RESURRECTION.
