Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: 2nd Samuel 20:14-21:22 Acts 1:1-26 Proverbs 16:18

“Ask for the Gospel”

“Ask rain from the Lord in the season of the spring rain,…”
[Zechariah 10:1]

Because the promise was made … that the Gospel would come, therefore prepare for it, and do not merely wait for it but also ask for it. For now it is time to ask for the true spring rain so that you may not be hindered by men’s teaching and the works of the Law, and be found unprepared for this rain. It will surely come; but it wants to be accepted and not despised; instead, it wants to be desired and received with careful attention. If you act in this way, then enough rain will come for the growing of all the good fruits of the Spirit. And so, the Gospel also comes when the consciences have become hot and thirsty because of the Law.
