Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: 2nd Chronicles 33:14-34:33 Romans 16:10-27 Proverbs 20:19

“Never Doubt Redemption”

“Christ gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.”
[Titus 2:14]

Again, a great light shines forth and teaches us how Christ, God’s Son, has redeemed us from death which, after the creation, had become our lot through Adam’s fall, and in which we would have perished eternally. Now think: just as in the First Article of the Creed you were to consider yourself as one of the redeemed and never doubt that. Emphasize one word above all others, for instance, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Likewise, suffered for us, died for us, arose for us. All this is ours and pertains to us; that “us” includes yourself, as the Word of God declares.
