In this week’s installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther writes about our exile and the work of Christ to overcome it:
“5955. First, let us remember, that because of the fall of Adam, we were driven from paradise and became homeless and destitute. Second, let us think about the Son of God who shared our exile and brought us back to our Father’s kingdom from which we had been expelled. Third, that we remember the lesson of this exile and that our homeland is not upon this earth [Philippians 3:20], but there will come another life, namely the eternal” (pp. 297)
