Martin Luther: The “dear sun” of Jesus Christ

18 03 2012

When the dear sun rises in the heavens, all other fires, lights, and stars are obscured by its brightness, and we take no notice of them.  Similarly, whenever Christ shines through the message of the Holy Spirit and it becomes known that we have God’s grace and eternal life through Him, then all subsidiary lights that try to point the way to salvation in our night and our darkness must go out of their own accord.

–Luther, Vol 24 pg 371-371
