Christian life consists of faith and charity

-Martin Luther
Martin Luther

We cannot attain to the understanding of Scripture either by study or by the intellect. Your first duty is to begin by prayer. Entreat the Lord to grant you, of His great mercy, the true understanding of His Word. There is no other interpreter of the Word of God than the Author of this Word, as He Himself has said, "They shall be all taught of God" (John 6:45). Hope for nothing from your own labors, from your own understanding: trust solely in God, and in the influence of His Spirit. Believe this on the word of a man who has experience.

Martin Luther
The worship of God....should be free at table, in private rooms, downstairs, upstairs, at home, abroad, in all places, by all peoples, at all times
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
It is neither safe nor prudent to do anything against conscience.
Martin Luther

Stubbornness should have been my middle name.

Martin Luther
The Gospel is nothing less than laughter and joy.
Martin Luther

At night always carry in your heart something from Holy Scriptures to bed with you, meditate upon it like a ruminant animal, and go softly to sleep; but this must not be too much, rather a little that may be well pondered and understood, that you may find a remnant of it in your mind when you rise in the morning.

Martin Luther
The only saving faith is that which casts itself on God for life or death.
Martin Luther

If I fail to spend two hours in prayer each morning, the devil gets the victory through the day. I have so much business I cannot get on without spending three hours daily in prayer.

Martin Luther
It is pleasing to God whenever thou rejoices or laughest from the bottom of thy heart
