A Christian has no need of any law in order to be saved, since through faith we are free from every law. Thus all the acts of a Christian are done spontaneously, out of a sense of pure liberty.

I can't keep the sparrows from flying around my head, but I can keep them from making a nest in my hair.

Martin Luther
Some plague the people with too long sermons; for the faculty of listening is a tender thing, and soon becomes weary and satiated.
Martin Luther

It is impossible for a man to be a Christian without having Christ; and if he has Christ he has at the same time all that is in Christ.

Martin Luther
There are three conversions necessary (for the Christian life): the conversion of the heart, the mind, and the purse.
Martin Luther

Our most merciful Father, seeing us to be oppressed and overwhelmed with the curse of the law . . . sent his only Son into the world and laid upon him all the sins of all men, saying, 'You be Peter that denier, Paul that persecutor, blasphemer and cruel oppressor, David that adulterer, that sinner who ate the apple in Paradise, that thief who hung upon the cross, and briefly, you be the person who has committed the sins of all men. See therefore that you pay and satisfy for them.'

Martin Luther
Nothing is more unbecoming to a teacher of the Word than flippancy. He must be serious and should not act like a clown.
Martin Luther

A large number of deaf, crippled and blind people are afflicted solely through the malice of the demon. And one must in no wise doubt that plagues, fevers and every sort of evil come from him.

Martin Luther
from you, my dear Erasmus, let me obtain this request, that just as I bear with your ignorance in these matters, so you in turn will bear with my lack of eloquence.
Martin Luther

Believest thou? then thou wilt speak boldly. Speakest thou boldy? then thou must suffer. Sufferest thou? then thou shalt be comforted. For faith, the confession thereof, and the cross do follow one another.

Martin Luther
When we hear that Christ was made a curse for us, let us believe it with joy and assurance. By faith Christ changes places with us. He gets our sins, we get His holiness.
