Jesus Christ never died for our good works. They were not worth dying for. But he gave himself for our sins, according to the Scriptures.

It is pleasing to the dear God whenever thou rejoicest or laughest from the bottom of thy heart.

Martin Luther
The Devil fears the word of God, He can't bite it; it breaks his teeth.
Martin Luther

Accordingly if the devil should say, 'Do not drink,' you should reply to him, 'On this very account, because you forbid it, I shall drink, and what is more, I shall drink a generous amount. Thus one must always do the opposite of that which Satan prohibits. What do you think is my reason for drinking wine undiluted, talking freely, and eating more often, if it is not to torment and vex the devil who made up his mind to torment and vex me.

Martin Luther
The sin underneath all our sins is to trust the lie of the serpent that we cannot trust the love and grace of Christ and must take matters into our own hands
Martin Luther

Your work is a very sacred matter. God delights in it, and through it, He wants to best His blessings on you. This praise of work should be inscribed on all tools, on the forehead and the faces that sweat from toiling.

Martin Luther
The church converteth the whole world by blood and prayer.
Martin Luther

I have undertaken to translate the Bible into German. This was good for me; otherwise I might have died in the mistaken notion that I was a learned fellow.

Martin Luther
Faith is permitting ourselves to be seized by the things that we do not see.
Martin Luther

Either sin is with you, lying on your shoulders, or it is lying on Christ, the Lamb of God.

Martin Luther
The cross alone is our theology.
