  • The Blessing of Grace

    June 17, 2018

    Luther's Devotions
    You are therefore called, that you should inherit a blessing.

    1 Peter 3:9.

    Wonderful and glorious fact, that God has decreed and appropriated to you this blessing whereby all the riches of his grace and everything good are yours! And that he will abundantly give you his Spirit to remain with you, blessing body and soul, if only you hold fast his...
  • They do not know Me

    These things will they do unto you, because they have not
    known the Father, nor me.

    John 16:3.

    Christ tells what moves those who oppose the gospel to such
    hatred and persecution of Christians as to excommunicate them
    and even attempt to kill them. It is because they preach concerning
    Christ, whom they themselves do not know. That they
    do not...

  • I n my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with
    new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any
    deadly thing, it shall not hurt them.

    Mark 16:17-18.

    How shall we proceed here that we may preserve the truth
    of this passage? The Lord says all these signs shall accompany
    them. Now we know that the apostles did not...

  • He Fights for us

    Luther's Devotions

      for everyone born of God  overcomes  the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.

    1 John 5:4.

    It is, indeed, saying very much for the Christian faith to attribute
    to it such power over the devil and the world — a power
    transcending all human ability. It requires an agency greater
    and higher...

  • Born of God

    Luther's Devotions
    for everyone born of God  overcomes  the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.   Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.

    1 John 5:4

    He who is born of God overcomes the world, John declares. Truly, this is a significant and forcible assertion...

    Luther's Devotions

    "And He (The Comforter), when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment;   concerning sin,  because they do not believe in Me;   and concerning  righteousness, because  I go to the Father and you no longer see Me;   and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has...

  • Peace Be with you

    Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week,
    when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled
    for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and said
    to them, Peace be unto you.

    John 20:19.

    Jesus finds his disciples sitting in fear and terror both from
    without because of the Jews and from within because of...

  • A Gracious Thing

    Luther's Devotions

    For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it,
    you endure? But 
    if when you do good and suffer for it you endure,
    this is a gracious thing in the sight of God.


    1 Peter 
    2:20.

    When the individual accepts Christ and begins to profess
    his faith in words and life, invariably the world, that eternal
    enemy of Christ and...

  • He Has Risen

    Luther's Devotions

    He rose again the third day according to the scriptures.

    1Cor. 15:4.

    Here we must remember the custom of the Hebrews, for
    according to the Jewish reckoning the day began in the evening
    and lasted until the evening of the next day, as the first chapter
    of Genesis says: "And there was evening and there was morning,
    one day," "a second day," "a...

  • Whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the
    Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the
    Lord.

    1Cor. 11:27.

    Let me say in regard to the Lord's Supper that when we
    have received it we ought to give heed to love, and in this way
    assure ourselves that we have received the sacrament profitably,
    and at the same time...
