Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: Ezekiel 35:1-36:38 James 1:1-18 Proverbs 27:23-27

“God Cares For His People”

We should all be individually certain about this, that we are the people of God, members of His Holy Christian Church. Above all things this faith is necessary, which firmly apprehends the following: the whole people of God happens to be blessed, holy, pleasing and acceptable to God in such a way that it cannot be torn from the hands of God. Again, we are the people of God. Therefore, God exercises care for us. The major premise is eminently true, because even the death and blood of the saints are “precious in the sight of the Lord” [Psalm 116:115]; all they do and suffer is pleasing to God [in that they do it for His kingdom]. On the contrary, their errors and lapses have been covered and forgiven, as Psalm 32:1 testifies. “Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.”
