In this week’s installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther explains why our sin should not drive us to despair:
6664. We are all great sinners, but we should not despair or abandon hope because of our sins. For God has made it known to all that the forgiveness of sins applies to everyone who acknowledges and confesses their sins from the heart, and that no one is excluded who remains true to his word and clings to the faith (p. 466)
