Luther: Christ and the Bible

Monday, October 30, 2017
    Commemoration of Martin Luther, Teacher, Reformer, 1546
    And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe.
    —1 Thessalonians 2:13 (NIV)
    Christ is the master; the Scriptures are only the servant.
    ... Martin Luther (1483-1546), quoted in The Religions of Authority and the Religion of the Spirit, Auguste Sabatier, London: Williams & Norgate, 1904, p. 158 (see the book)
    See also 1 Thess. 2:13; Matt. 17:1-5; Mark 9:2-7; Luke 9:28-32; John 1:14; 2 Pet. 1:16-21; 1 John 1:1-3; 4:14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your Scriptures speak abundantly of Christ, to my eternal benefit.
