Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: Joshua 11:1-12:24 Luke 17:11-37 Proverbs 13:5-6

“Under Christ’s Feet”

“When God raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places … and he put all things under his feet.”
[Ephesians 1:20, 22]

Christ is a much greater and higher lord than Adam was before the fall. For nothing was subjected to Adam or put under his feet, but everything is put under Christ’s feet, so that the whole world and all His enemies will have to be His footstool {Psalm 110:1}. Therefore, this text cannot be neglected, since it strongly shows the doctrine that Christ is true God and man. If He were not man, He could not be the Son of Man. If He were not God, He could not be Lord over all the works of God nor have all things under His feet. For no one has a right to be Lord over heaven, earth, angels, man, life, and death – except the One who is true God.
