Mondays with Marty

In this week’s installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther explains how believers should be the happiest people of all:

2457a. Whenever I compare Moses with Christ, Christ knocks the bottom out of the keg [to make a bullhorn] and shouts “Do not put your trust in Moses [i.e. the Law], but in me, Christ. Even though you are not pious, I am pious.” And this is the art of the Christian; that I fly from my sins, which are as certain as life itself, to the righteousness of Christ. As long as I live, I live in Him; when I die, then I will go to Him, I was baptized in Him, I receive Him in the Sacrament,  and I am guided by Him. He receives us with open arms; all we need to do is to trust in Him.  (p. 415-16).
