Top 10 Quotes by Martin Luther

Martin Luther

We conclude, therefore, that a Christian lives not in himself, but in Christ and in his neighbor. Otherwise he is not a Christian. He lives in Christ through faith, in his neighbor through love. By faith he is caught up beyond himself into God. By love he descends beneath himself into his neighbor.

Martin Luther
The Holy Spirit is no Skeptic, & the things He has written in our hearts are not doubts or opinions, but assertions - surer & more certain than sense & life itself.
Martin Luther

I hate myself, that I cannot believe it so constantly and surely as I should; but no human creature can rightly know how mercifully God is inclined toward those that steadfastly believe in Christ.

Martin Luther
Good works are the seals and proofs of faith; for even as a letter must have a seal to strengthen the same, even so faith must have good works.
Martin Luther

Faith is a living, daring confidence in God's grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.

Martin Luther
The bible is the cradle that holds the Christ, without him it is nothing more than wood and straw.
Martin Luther

The soul can do without everything except the word of God, without which none at all of its wants are provided for.

Martin Luther
Who waits until circumstances completely favor his undertaking, will never accomplish anything.
Martin Luther

It is a good thing to let prayer be the first business in the morning and the last in the evening. Guard yourself against such false and deceitful thoughts that keep whispering, "Wait a while. In an hour or so I will pray. I must first finish this or that." Thinking such thoughts we get away from prayer into other things that will hold us and involve us till the prayer of the day comes to naught.

Martin Luther
Be a sinner and sin boldly, but believe and rejoice in Christ even more boldly.
