Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: Deut. 33:1-Joshua 4:24 Luke 13:1-14:35 Proverbs 12:25-28

“The Excellent Thing”

“May you have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”
[Ephesians 3:18-19]

When a Christian hears this – that God’s Son has come to us from heaven, preach to us, and given Himself to us, should he not be amazed and overwhelmed with joy? For who can sufficiently express or comprehend what a great and excellent thing it is that God’s Son has become our flesh and blood and is our own? Indeed, the angels in heaven cannot be filled with enough amazement, that God so dearly loved us poor, lost human beings, and shown us such inexpressible kindness, that He Himself becomes a man, speaks with us, lives among us, dies for us on a cross, etc.
