A Luther Quote and a Plea For Freedom This Weekend

Surely we are named after Christ, not because he is absent from us, but because he dwells in us, that is, because we believe in him and are Christs to one another and do to our neighbors as Christ does to us. But in our day we are taught by the doctrine of men to seek nothing but merits, rewards, and the things that are ours; of Christ we have made only a taskmaster far harsher than Moses.

The great news of the gospel is that God has set us totally free because of Jesus’ perfect life for us, death for us, resurrection for us, continual mediation for us and promise of his return for our enjoyment of him forever.

Is there anything to fear this weekend? Live the live of freedom Jesus offers and live it to its fullest, loving and serving those close to you.
