Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: 2nd Samuel 7:1-8:18 John 14:15-31 Proverbs 15:33

“Fulfilling the Law”

“Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.”
[Romans 3:31]

Behold, this is a doctrine, and the power of the Gospel, and the treasure, by which we are saved, which brings us to the point that we also begin to fulfill the Law. For where the great unfathomable love and favor of Christ are known and believed, thence flows forth also love both to God and to our neighbor. For by means of such knowledge and consolation of the Holy Spirit moves the heart to love God, and gladly does what it should to His praise and thanks, guards against sin and disobedience, and willingly offers itself to serve and help it’s neighbor.
