Great Quotes: Luther

"However, you must fend this [Anfechtung] off and cling with
a firm faith to the fact that your Christ has risen from the
dead. He, too, suffered such anguish and fear of hell [i.e., the
type suffered by Christians now], but through His resurrection
He has overcome all. Therefore, even though I am a
sinner and deserving of death and hell, this shall nonetheless
be my consolation and my victory that my Lord Jesus lives
and has risen so that He, in the end, might rescue me from
sin, death, and hell."

Luther's Works 28, p. 105. Quote in CONCORDIA THEOLOGICAL QUARTERLY
