law and gospel, fighter and friend, luther
Bible Study; Lecture; Sermon Prep
During the season of the Reformation Festival we do well to focus our thinking on two facets, at opposite poles and yet totally together, in the career and in the person of the great Reformer: that Luther was a fighter and that Luther was a friend. We would think about this fact obviously not just to say "How peculiar!" or "How interesting!" but in order that this fighting spirit, this friendly spirit, might become ingrained and fused in the heart and in the career of every one of us.
