TOPIC INDEXJesus Christ (17)
  1. Thomas is an illustration of the power of Christ’s resurrection.
  2. All human wisdom, righteousness, and holiness are made futile in that which belongs to God’s kingdom.
  3. Grace remits sin, and peace quiets the conscience. Sin and conscience torment us, but Christ has overcome these fiends now and forever.
  4. The night has passed and the day broken. In response to the morning dawn, birds sing, beasts arouse themselves and all humanity arises.
  5. Christ strikes a blow first against the presumption of those who would storm their way into heaven by their good works.
  6. Our certainty is of Christ, that mighty hero who overcame the Law, sin, death, and all evils.
  7. God bestows faith that it should deal not with ordinary things, but with things no human being can master such as death, sin, the world, and Satan.
  8. We do not believe that the virgin mother bore a son and that he is the Lord and Savior unless I believe the second thing, that he is my Savior and Lord.
  9. A truly Christian work is it that we descend and get mixed up in the mire of the sinner, taking his sin upon ourselves and floundering out of it with him, not acting otherwise than as if his sin were our own.
  10. Although human reason pretends to understand a great deal about work and word of God. The glory of it is too bright, the longer he beholds it the blinder he becomes.
  11. Christ presents to us such liberty, so that we as Christians according to our faith may tolerate no other master, but only hold that we are baptized and called unto Christ, and through him have become justified and sanctified.
  12. Love is to be the interpreter of law. Where there is no love, these things are meaningless, and law begins to do harm.
