Luther: the promise of resurrection

Saturday, June 11, 2016
    Feast of Barnabas the Apostle
    And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.
    —Romans 8:11 (NIV)
    Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone but in every leaf in springtime.
    ... Martin Luther (1483-1546), Watchwords for the Warfare of Life, Elizabeth Rundle Charles, ed., New York: M. W. Dodd, 1869, p. 317 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 8:11; Joel 2:23-24; Zech. 10:1; Acts 2:24,32-33; Rom. 4:23-25; Eph. 1:18-20; Heb. 13:20; 1 Pet. 1:21
Quiet time reflection:
    Spirit of God, live within me!
