Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: Leviticus 14:1-57 Mark 6:30-56 Proverbs 10:11-12

“All that We Are and Have”

“ But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.”
[1st Corinthians 15:10]

I have done it as a service to the dear Christians, and to the honor of One who sits above, who blesses above, who blesses me so much every hour of my life that if I had translated a thousand times as much or as diligently, I should not for a single hour have deserved to live or to have a sound eye. All that I am and have is of His grace and mercy, indeed, of His precious blood and bitter sweat. Therefore, God willing, all of it shall also serve to His honor, joyfully, and sincerely … and I am more than plentifully repaid, if even a single Christian acknowledges me as an honest workman.
