Gems from Martin Luther

Prayer is climbing up into the heart of God!

God does not need your good works–but your neighbor does!

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

The most damnable and pernicious heresy that has ever plagued the mind of man, was the idea that somehow he could make himself good enough to deserve to live with an all-holy God!

When Satan tells me I am a sinner–he comforts me immeasurably, since Christ died for sinners.

The following is from Bonar’s book,
“The Night of Weeping”

“In all our affliction he is afflicted.”

Jesus weeps with us.

He knows our sorrows, for He has passed
through them all, and therefore He feels
for us. He is touched with the feeling of
our griefs as well as of our infirmities.
Even in His glory He enters most fully into
the fellowship of our burdens and sorrow,
whatever these may be, for there is not
one which He did not taste when He “dwelt
among us” here. His is sympathy, deep,
real, and true. It is no fiction, no fancy.
We do not see His tears falling upon us;
neither do we clasp His hand nor feel the
beating of His heart against ours. But still
His communion with us in suffering is a reality.
