When God contemplates some great work, He begins it by the hand of some poor, weak, human creature, to whom He afterwards gives aid.

We old folks have to find our cushions and pillows in our tankards. Strong beer is the milk of the old.

Martin Luther
For that purpose Christ instituted holy baptism, thereby to clothe you with his righteousness. It is tantamount to his saying, My righteousness shall be your righteousness; my innocence, your innocence. Your sins indeed are great, but by baptism I bestow on you my righteousness; I strip death from you and clothe you with my life.
Martin Luther

All creatures are merely veils under which God hides Himself and deals with us.

Martin Luther
The priest is not made. He must be born a priest; must inherit his office. I refer to the new birth-the birth of water and the Spirit. Thus all Christians must became priests, children of God and co-heirs with Christ the Most High Priest.
Martin Luther

The first duty of the gospel preacher is to declare God's law and to show the nature of sin.

Martin Luther
The confidence and faith of the heart alone make both God and an idol. If your faith and trust be right, then is your god also true; and, on the other hand, if your trust be false and wrong, then you have not the true God; for these two belong together faith and God. That now, I say, upon which you set your heart and put your trust is properly your god.
Martin Luther

I feel much freer now that I am certain the pope is the Antichrist. Martin Luthe

To progress is always to begin always to begin again

Faith is the master, and reason the maid-servant.

Martin Luther
The Holy Spirit has a way of His own to say much in few words.
