SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK - ROMANS 1:16-17

Martin Luther struggled with guilt and fear. He knew that God was Holy and that he was a sinner. He knew even his best deeds were tainted by the sin of inordinate self-concern. While he was a monk he agonized over making himself right with God, securing his own salvation.

One day while reading Romans he came upon the verses above which he read as saying we are made right with God not by our works but by our faith in Jesus Christ. That is to say we are saved by trusting in the graciousness of God made manifest in the life, death, and resurrection of His Son Jesus.

Luther saw the Christian life as a life lived thanking God for the gift of our salvation. Along with Calvin, he saw the commandments of God and Jesus as guides to our thanksgiving. We show our loving gratitude by obeying them.
