The daily Luther

16th July

If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.

John 8 (lii)

This must be an outstanding, all-powerful medicine that can so easily heal such an immense catastrophe as Death itself so that Death is no longer visible. If the World believed this, it would do anything to obtain the Word of God. - Just see how highly and with how much affection the art of healing a fever or the plague is appreciated amongst the people. And see how everybody runs around, spends money and does everything possible to be healthy. But no-one takes any or, at least, only little notice of that treasure and precious jewel that can remove Death with all its illnesses, grief and wretchedness. This treasure is no other than the Sublime Eternal Truth, God Himself. May He be praised in all eternity. Amen!

The complete Luther - "A Meditation for Each Day of the Year" is available as a biligual (English and German) BREVIARY published by Wartburg Verlag Weimar. It can be purchased in English, world-wide from most internet book shops.
