Martin Luther: What a glorious thing to have the word of God!

24 01 2012

Oh!  How great and glorious a thing it is to have before one the Word of God!  With that we may at all times feel joyous and secure; we need never be in want of consolation, for we see before us, in all its brightness, the pure and right way.  He who loses sight of the Word of God falls into despair; the voice of heaven no longer sustains him; he follows on the disorderly tendency of his heart and of world vanity, which lead him on to his destruction.
