Luther: having Christ

Monday, February 22, 2021
    ... remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.
    —Ephesians 2:12-13 (NIV)
    It is impossible for a man to be a Christian without having Christ; and if he has Christ he has at the same time all that is in Christ.
    ... Martin Luther (1483-1546), remarks on Thesis 37, Resolutiones et Responsiones, 1518History of the Great Reformation of the Sixteenth Century in Germany, Jean Henri Merle d’Aubigné, London: Walther, 1838, p. 379-380 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 2:12-13; Rom. 7:4; 1 Cor. 3:21-23; Col. 2:2-3,9-10; 3:11; 1 John 5:11-12; 2 John 9
Quiet time reflection:
    Does someone I know think he or she is a Christian but does not have Christ?
