A Word From Luther

Martin Luther

“Now when you have Christ as the foundation and chief blessing of your salvation, then the other part follows: that you take him as your example, giving yourself in service to your neighbor just as you see that Christ has given himself for you. See, there faith and love move forward, God’s commandment is fulfilled, and a person is happy and fearless to do and to suffer all things.”

– Martin Luther, from Basic Theological Writings, p. 95

    goes back to how love fulfills the law. sometimes we get wrapped up in the dos and don’ts and get so analytical that we forget the crux of the command is simply “love-God-love-people.”
