In this week’s installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther writes about God’s graciousness despite our rebellion:
“905. God gave us the sun, moon, stars, the elements, and all creation, our bodies, life; and placed at our disposal all He had created; and in addition to that, nothing less than Himself. And what did He reap from all that? That He should be scorned and His Son and followers killed, etc. In vain, He created us; in vain, He nourished us; in vain, He maintains us, etc.” (pp. 252)
