Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: 2nd Kings 4:18-5:27 Acts 15:1-35 Proverbs 17:23

“The Revealed God”

“Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?”
[John 14:9]

God says to you: “Behold, you have My Son. Listen to Him, and receive Him. If you do this, you are already sure about your faith and salvation.” “But I do not know,” you will say, “whether I am remaining in the faith.” At all events, accept the present promise and do not inquire too curiously about the secret counsels of God. If you believe in the revealed Lord, and trust His Word, He will gradually reveal the hidden Lord; for “He who sees me sees the Father,” as John 14:9 says. If you cling to the revealed God along with a firm faith, so that your heart is so minded that you will not lose Christ, even if you are deprived of everything, then you are most assuredly God’s child and then you will begin to understand the hidden God.
