Theologia Germanica: life of Christ

Monday, April 8, 2019
    Commemoration of William Augustus Muhlenberg of New York, Priest, 1877
    In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
    —Romans 6:11 (NIV)
    Since the life of Christ is every way most bitter to nature and the Self and the Me (for in the true life of Christ, the Self and the Me and nature must be forsaken and lost and die altogether), therefore in each of us, nature hath a deep horror of it.
    ... Theologia Germanica [1518], Anonymous, ascribed to Johannes de Francfordia, (1380?-1440) & Susanna Winkworth, tr., published anonymously by Martin Luther, ch. XX (see the book)
    See also Rom. 6:11; John 12:24; Rom. 6:5-7; Col. 3:9-10
Quiet time reflection:
    You are life, Lord.
