Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: Leviticus 13:1-59 Mark 6:1-29 Proverbs 10:10

“A Wondrous Thing”

Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.”
[Romans 15:7]

This is, to the glory of God, or that God may hereby be glorified. The glory of God is truly a wondrous thing! For He is glorified when sinners and the weak are received. His glory lies in the fact that He is our Benefactor. Therefore it is His glory, that is, an occasion for His kindness, when those are brought to Him who will receive His blessing. Thus we are not to bring the strong, the holy, the wise. For in them God cannot be glorified, since they think He is no a blessing to them, they think they do not need Him – that is a sad thing, that is such a sad thing!
