The Life of Luther

Luther Restored by Music Luther had a very strong love for music, and its power over him was great. When he was afflicted with a fit of melancholy, he used to seek comfort therein. Seckendorf (p. 21) says, that “once, when he had shut himself up in his cell for a couple of days, without admitting any one, Edensberg, with some young musicians, knocked at the door, and, obtaining no…

The Voice of the Good Shepherd

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he…

One and the Same

Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.  John 7:16 MANY ARE NOT CONTENT WITH JESUS. They seek the true God behind His back. The first audiences of His sermons balked at His audacious offer of forgiveness: “Who can forgive sins but God alone?!” When Peter was confronted with the prophecy of this world’s rejection and abuse of Messiah, he was equally nonplussed:…

He had only to look around him to see that everything that God had created was perfect; and God Himself had declared that it was all very good.
