Theologia Germanica: life of Christ

March 11, 2009

    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], ch. XX (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    You are life, Lord.
