It is a glory that every preacher may be able to say with full confidence that he trusts God for teaching and preaching truly the Word of God.
Lessons in the Lutheran Confessions
Christ keeps aloof from lazy, unfaithful idlers who will not do as they have been commanded, and will not keep their hands and feet from straying.
Christ has not come to make you afraid, but to remove your sins and distress from you. “Fear not,” he speaks to your heart, and to the whole world.
The curse of humanity is they shall never be satisfied and must endure heartache and everlasting destruction through the things they have coveted.
If you only remain under Christ's protection and lie still upon his shoulders, you need not be troubled about sin, death, or hell, for he defends you.
No life is so difficult as the life of faith, depending only upon the promises of God when the who world seems to say, "God has forgotten all about you."
