Mondays with Marty

In this week’s installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther reminds us of the implications of the resurrection:

669. If God is for us, who can be against us [Romans 8:31]? Death is swallowed up by victory (1 Cor 15:55]. And if that is the case with death, then it is the same with sin. If death, then also with all diseases. If death, then also all suffering. If death, then also all acts of the devil. If death, then also the fury of the world. But all of that is not yet apparent. Yes, today we see the opposite. Therefore faith is important. The unveiled manifestation of things will, in due time, follow faith. What is now invisible will, at that time, will become visible. Likewise, (just as it was in the beginning) the visible will be made from the invisible world  (p. 399-400).
