Divine Goodness and Compassion

17 Jun


No Threats or Penalties

24 Apr

A lawdriver insists with threats and penalties; a preacher of grace lures and incites with divine goodness and compassion shown to us; for he wants no unwilling works and reluctant services, he wants joyful and delightful services of God.

Martin Luther

Quoted in The Interpretation of St. Paul’s Epistle to the Romans 8-16, 2008, by R.C.H. Lenski, 746

The Law Humbles, Grace Exalts

17 Nov

The law works fear and wrath; grace works hope and mercy.

Martin Luther (1483-1546)

The Heidelberg Disputation
