  • Are You Awake?

    December 10, 2017
    Filed Under:
    Luther's Devotions

    Knowing the tune, that now it is high time to awake out of

    Rom. 13:11.

    For the sake of effect and emphasis the apostle in his admonition
    employs a pleasing figure and makes an eloquent appeal.
    The word "sleep" is used as a simile to help us grasp the spiritual
    thought. Since for the sake of temporal gain men rise
    from sleep, put aside the...

  • Behold, Your King comes unto thee, meek, and sitting upon
    a Donkey, and a colt the foal of the beast of burden.

    Matt. 21:5.

    "Behold." With this word The Apostle Matthew at once rouses us
    from sleep and unbelief as though he had something great or
    remarkable to offer, something we have long wished for and now
    receive with joy. Such waking up is...

  • Be Content

    Luther's Devotions

    Jesus saith unto him, If it is my will that he will remain till I come, what
    is that to thee? You follow me! 

    John 21:22.

    Christ teaches us a beautiful and touching lesson. Not with standing
    the examples and lives of all the saints every person
    should attend to the work entrusted to him and guard the honor
    of his calling. This is truly a...

  • Redeeming The Time

    November 19, 2017

    Luther's Devotions

    Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

    Eph. 5:16.

    The time is unquestionably good as long as the gospel is faithfully
    preached and received. At the same time, even today the
    world is filled with evils, factions, false theories and bad examples
    of every sort; much of this wickedness is inherent in ourselves.
    With these things the...

  • He Died for all

    November 12, 2017

    Luther's Devotions

    If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus
    Christ the righteous: and he is the Payment for our sins:
    and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

    1 John 2:1-2.

    Since we are unable to keep the law, Christ came and stepped
    between the Father and us, and prays for us: Beloved Father,
    be gracious unto them and...

  • Trust in God's Mercy

    Luther's Devotions

    I acknowledge my transgressions : and my sin is ever before

    Psalm 51:3.

    Every Christian who wishes to make confession of his sins
    should place his confidence without reserve in the merciful
    promises and invitations of God, firmly believing that Almighty
    God will graciously forgive him his sins. Before he confesses
    his sins to a confessor,...

  • David's Seed and God's Son

    Luther's Devotions

    The Lord said unto my Lord, you will sit on my right hand, till I make your enemies thy footstool.
    Matt. 22:44.

    Here Christ does not explain, but only says that David in his Psalm called Christ his Lord. "How then does David in the Spirit call him Lord?" It does not sound right and it is contrary to nature for a father to call his son lord,...

  • Be Blessed

    Luther's Devotions

    Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the
    ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the
    seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord;
    and in his law does he meditate day and night.

    Ps. 1:1-2.

    There is a common inquiry among humanity concerning blessedness;
    there is no one who does not wish that it...

  • All Glory to God

    October 15, 2017
    Filed Under:
    Luther's Devotions

    Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine others? They're
    are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this

    Luke 17: 17, 18.

    The stranger sincerely gives God all the glory. O, what a
    terrible example is this! Among ten only one, and he among them was
    the least and most worthless. How entirely does God overlook

  • Service form the Heart

    October 8, 2017

    Luther's Devotions

    By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac: and
    he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten
    son, of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall your seed come.

    Heb. 11:17, 18.

    To reason it was a foolish command God gave to Abraham
    to slay his son. If reason should be the judge, all mankind would
    come to no other...
