Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: Isaiah 37:1-38:22 Galatians 6:1-18 Proverbs 23:24

“The Fulfillment of the Law”

“By canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.”
[Colossians 2:14]

Only Christ takes away the Law, kills my sin, destroys my death in His body, and this way empties hell, judges the devil, and throws him down into hell. In other words, everything that once used to torment and oppress me, Christ has set aside; He has disarmed it and made a public example of it, triumphing over it in Himself [Colossians 2:14-15], so that it cannot dominate any longer but is compelled to serve me.
