I more fear what is within me than what comes from without.

-Martin Luther

There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.

Martin Luther
A man who has no part in the grace of God, cannot keep the commandments of God, or prepare himself, either wholly or in part, to receive grace; but he rests of necessity under the power of sin.
Martin Luther

Some people need a fig-leaf on their mouths.

Martin Luther
I compare it with a lie, which like to a snowball, the longer it is rolled the greater it becomes.
Martin Luther

I know that a Christian should be humble, but against the Pope I am going to be proud and say to him: "You, Pope, I will not have you for my boss, for I am sure that my doctrine is divine.

Martin Luther
God's love gives in such a way that it flows from a Father's heart, the well-spring of all good. The heart of the giver makes the gift dear and precious; as among ourselves we say of even a trifling gift, "It comes from a hand we love," and look not so much at the gift as at the heart.
Martin Luther

God does not save those who are only imaginary sinners. Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong (sin boldly), but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world. We will commit sins while we are here, for this life is not a place where justice resides. We, however, ... are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth where justice will reign.

Martin Luther
Strange, though I am saved from sin, I am not saved from sinning.
Martin Luther

Whoever does not accept my teaching may not be saved -- for it is God's teaching and not mine.

Martin Luther
Feelings come and feelings go, And feelings are deceiving; My warrant is the Word of God-- Naught else is worth believing. Though all my heart should feel condemned For want of some sweet token, There is One greater than my heart Whose Word cannot be broken. I'll trust in God's unchanging Word Till soul and body sever, For, though all things shall pass away, HIS WORD SHALL STAND FOREVER!
