Mondays with Marty

In this week’s installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther explains how Christ rewards his servants poorly in this life:

272. Christ is incomprehensible in this life, because He rewards his best and truest servants very badly, so that I am forced to say, “I really don’t know what I am doing, whether I am preaching the truth or not.” That is what tormented Paul and the martyrs as well, as he [Paul], in my opinion, did not have much to say about it, for who can imagine what it was like, where he says in 1 Corinthians 15:31: “I face death every day.” Christ also had His temptations.  (p. 396).
