Martin Luther

1483 - 1546

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

Faith does not inquire whether there are good works to be done, but even before asking questions, faith has done the works already.
