A Quote by Martin Luther on authors, belief, duty, experience, god, hope, influence, labor, mercy, prayer, spirit, study, trust, and understanding

We cannot attain to the understanding of Scripture either by study or by the intellect. Your first duty is to begin by prayer. Entreat the Lord to grant you, of His great mercy, the true understanding of His Word. There is no other interpreter of the Word of God than the Author of this Word, as He Himself has said, "They shall be all taught of God" (John 6:45). Hope for nothing from your own labors, from your own understanding: trust solely in God, and in the influence of His Spirit. Believe this on the word of a man who has experience.

A Quote by Martin Luther on authors, books, christ, failure, and work

Christ is the Master; the Scriptures are only the servant. The true way to test all the Books is to see whether they work the will of Christ or not. No Book which does not preach Christ can be apostolic, though Peter or Paul were its author. And no Book which does preach Christ can fail to be apostolic, although Judas, Ananias, Pilate, or Herod were its author.

A Quote by Martin Luther on anxiety, belief, commitment, god, heart, labor, quiet, serenity, sleep, tranquility, and work

He who believes in God is not careful for the morrow, but labors joyfully and with a great heart. "For He giveth His beloved, as in sleep." They must work and watch, yet never be careful or anxious, but commit all to Him, and live in serene tranquility; with a quiet heart, as one who sleeps safely and quietly.

A Quote by Martin Luther on day, death, sleep, and spirit

What is our death but a night's sleep? For as through sleep all weariness and faintness pass away and cease, and the powers of the spirit come back again, so that in the morning we arise fresh and strong and joyous; so at the Last Day we shall rise again as if we had only slept a night, and shall be fresh and strong.

A Quote by Martin Luther on faith, good, and questions

A Quote by Martin Luther on age, body, christ, cruelty, darkness, devil, earth, failure, fear, gifts, god, jesus, life, losing, mortality, spirit, strength, truth, work, and world

A mighty fortress is our God, A bulwark never failing; Our helper He, amid the flood Of mortal ills prevailing. For still our ancient foe Doth seek to work us woe; His craft and pow'r are great, And, armed with cruel hate, On earth is not his equal. Did we in our own strength confide, Our striving would be losing, Were not the right Man on our side, The Man of God's own choosing. Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He; Lord Sabaoth His name, From age to age the same, And He must win the battle. And though this world, with devils filled, Should threaten to undo us, We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us. The prince of darkness grim - We tremble not for him; His rage we can endure, For lo! his doom is sure; One little word shall fell him. That word above all earthly pow'rs - No thanks to them - abideth; The Spirit and the gifts are ours Through Him Who with us sideth. Let goods and kindred go, This mortal life also; The body they may kill; God's truth abideth still, His kingdom is for ever. Amen.
